“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
