High-Flying Rockets STEM Unit

Description

Fun and excitement go hand in hand with learning STEM concepts through the rocketry activities in this three-week unit. Starting with water rockets, students dive into the science of rocketry with fuel pressure testing and analysis, fuel volume testing, and apogee while launching water-propelled rockets. Then, students move to the rockets with real power – solid-fuel rockets that can reach hundreds of feet into the sky! While building and launching these thrilling rockets, students also learn about average velocity, potential and kinetic energies, and how to design for stability.

Interested in purchasing storage for your STEM Unit? We recommend the addition of three Standard Gray Bins, two Clear Storage Bins with Lids, two Large Blue Bins, and two Jumbo Blue Bins to help make storing your STEM Unit supplies a breeze!
