Air Rocket

Race a competitor to the top!

Air Rocket users can choose a rocket or build their own, place it on the launch pad and experience Sir Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion first hand!

Intended Use

User approaches the exhibit and selects an Air Rocket to place on the launch pad. The user then cranks the rotary pump handle to reach the desired PSI (0-30) and presses the green button when ready to launch.  The exhibit can be tuned for shorter ceiling heights.

Explore the effects of varying the air pressure to achieve different results with each launch. Combine with the Air Rockets a Make-it station for even more freedom to experiment with different rocket designs.
