Description

Water rocketry is one of the most fun and exciting hands-on science activities around. Converting empty plastic soda bottles into high-flying rockets provides a great opportunity for students to discover important scientific principles such as Newton’s laws, acceleration, thrust, and inertia.

A second-generation launcher, the AquaPort II was redesigned to be safer than ever and still offer consistent launching for water rockets of various sizes: 2 liter, 20 ounce, and some 1 liter. Still utilizing the three-finger latch to securely hold the pressurized rocket in place, the launcher also features:

  • Sturdy tripod base and release system that provide excellent launchpad stability.
  • A launch mechanism pulled by 25' of launch string to keep everyone far away from the launcher.
  • An extensive 25' of air tubing – and it has handy brackets on one leg for winding the tubing.
  • Stakes to secure the launcher to the ground.

With no engines to buy, you can launch rockets again and again! Note: Recommended for only outdoor launches on the ground (not on asphalt or concrete). Requires a bicycle pump, sold separately.
