Overview

The revolutionary Meteor Rocket with its patented baking soda fueling system has thrilled thousands upon thousands of kids across the world. Winner of many awards, this unique rocket is an adventure unlike any other.

Unforgettable Science!
The Meteor is a science experience kids will never forget. Go for a new altitude record by varying the proportions of baking soda and vinegar, try balsamic vinegar to see if it gives an extra "kick" to the fuel, change the fuselage length to test flight characteristics. Chemistry and physics will never be the same!

The Power Secret
Our baking soda and vinegar formula starts a chemical reaction inside the patented fueling module, creating enormous power that blasts the Meteor over 100 feet into the sky.

For ages 8 and up.

    Our kiddos are 5 and 7 and have gotten a HUGE thrill out of this

    Our kiddos are 5 and 7 and have gotten a HUGE thrill out of this. Other than the poorly written instructions (they should have used spell check!), assembly was easy enough (and it's nice when a science toy like this requires a little input and assembly from the user rather than just being ready to go right out of the box).
    It also takes a few minutes between launches to dry the inner tube and reassemble the components, but that keeps everyone interested, rather than just launching it over and over every 30 seconds and tiring of it. As far as safety, we definitely wouldn't let children get it set for launch, and we have them stay back. Some of the materials were damaged on "re-entry," but there are extra materials and the instructions include guidance on everyday items that can be used for replacement. Fun.
