How does the rocket work?
Create this simple to make and easy to use rocket. Wrap the paper around the tube, cap it using the rocket nose cone and add the paper fins to create your rocket. To fire the rocket just blow air through the rolled up tube and watch it go. Experiment by customising the fins and body and even give the rocket wings to see if it can glide (not included).

What can I learn?
The distance your rocket (manufactures code BIG 023) can reach will depend primarily on two things - how much forward momentum there is and how much drag the rocket creates. The more aerodynamic the shape of the rocket the further it will go whilst the addition of wings or longer fins can increase drag but improve lift later to keep the rocket in the air longer.
