A Pitsco Exclusive

Availability: In Stock
Notice: Ground Only


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.
