“The straw rockets unit is one of my students’ favorite activities. They absolutely love designing, building, and testing their rockets. You can hear their excitement build when they use the Pitsco launcher and watch their rockets fly down the designated path. Using straw rockets provides an excellent opportunity to integrate STEM skills into your curriculum.”

– Joan Gillman, former fourth- and fifth-grade teacher

“Just wanted to [say] that I am so proud that I got the Straw Rocket Launcher! We had school Monday and Tuesday this week. I decided we would make straw rockets on Monday and we launched them today! The students loved it! Please let me know if you have any other wonderful activities like this! Thanks so much.”

– Cindy Thomas, STEM teacher, Choctaw Central High School, Choctaw, Mississippi
