Rocketry: build your own launcher

November 17, 2009

During our MOSAIC Rocketry classes, the students had the opportunity to build their own air powered rockets. Model rockets are great — but air powered rockets also have many advantages.
1. Cost effectiveness
2. Experimentation (kids can try out new wing design, shape, materials, etc) and see the amazing properties of air as a method of propulsion.
3. Unlimited launches
4. Fun for all ages

Want to see how to build your own launcher? Check out this great instructional video from Tod Farrell, our instructor for MOSAIC Rocketry.
