Description

With the Pitsco Solid-Fuel Rocket Kit, students engage in a rewarding, hands-on project. They build the body tube, design and shape the rocket fins, and make the parachute recovery system. When they’re finished, they watch their rockets blast toward the stratosphere. 

Please note that rocket engines ship separately and take 3-4 weeks for delivery via USPS. Individuals needing these materials sooner can pay an additional hazard fee to have the items delivered via UPS. To ship via UPS, you must call our customer service team at 800-835-0686 and place your order.

Looking for standards-based activities to accompany these materials? The Solid-Fuel Rockets Teacher's Guide is available for print here, or you can download a digital copy for free here.
