Mindsets Station X Rocket Kit
• Create an air powered rocket
• Use the tube to fire the rocket like a blow dart
• Learn about forces and drag
• Kit comes in five pieces
• Suitable for ages 11+ with adult supervisionHow does the rocket work?
Build an amazing rocket with this kit (manufacturer’s code BPX 003). Simply roll the paper around the tube, cap it using the rubber toppers and add the paper fins to finish your rocket. To fire it just blow air through the rolled up tube and watch it go. See what happens when you customise the fins and body and even try to glide the rocket using wings or long fins (not included) glued onto the sides of the rocket.
What can I learn?
The distance your rocket 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. The addition of wings or longer fins can increase drag but improve lift later to keep the rocket in the air longer.
