Make and take away a compressed air launcher capable of projecting a cardboard rocket 100m.
All materials supplied. Suitable for many scientific investigations. Lots of resources and teaching ideas supplied. Numbers limited to 20.
Not strictly speaking rockets, actually projectiles. Make a compressed air rocket launcher from plumbing parts. The rockets are made from paper /card and sellotape.
They are easy and cheap to make in class. Amongst other things, you can change the weighting; position of fins, number of fins, shape and size of nosecone on the projectile and the pressure and angle of firing can be changed on the launcher - Ideal for investigations.
These rockets will spectacularly easily travel 100m.
The Rocket launcher is made from copper pipe, qual pex and other plumbing fittings (each launcher worth about €35 in materials)
IoPI and ISTA will supply all materials and tools needed. Participants construct and take their launcher back to school.
Each teacher will also receive a lots of resources to use with the launcher.
The launcher and rockets can be modified for use with dragsters
