Overview

Rocket science is as cool as science gets, and your students get to design, build, and test rockets themselves. Their designs. Their innovations. Not students anymore, they are rocket scientists. These rocket-building activities challenge students to work in teams like NASA engineers-they make and test models as they measure, record data and graph and report results. There are more than 30 demonstrations and 16 models, all with clear guidelines and science standards to be met. The experiments require only inexpensive or free recycled materials.
