Straw Rocket Launcher

A Pitsco Exclusive
Please read and follow all teacher tips and safety information provided with this product.
Type: Tools and Equipment/Launching and Testing Ages: 5+

Students can build their own straw rockets and test them on the Straw Rocket Launcher. Just like early rocket pioneer Robert Goddard, they can conduct scientific experiments by varying the trajectory angle and launch energy. These rockets can travel up to 50 feet!

The Straw Rocket Launcher uses pneumatic force created by releasing a weighted drop rod in the cylinder to launch rockets. The force of the launch can be controlled by varying the release height of the rod. The launcher features:

  • Simple operation
  • Adjustable trajectory angle with angle gauge

  • Rating: The drop rod for the Straw Rocket Launcher weighs 458 grams
  • Dimensions: 9" x 11" x 25"

Construct and design a minimum of two and a maximum of four straw rockets where the only variable is the rocket body length.

To engage students in understanding rocket flight and the forces that act upon flight, students build and launch three straw rockets. The first two rockets are for practice, and the final rocket is for the record. Rockets can be made with or without fins.
