Make and Launch Stomp Rockets

Build an amazing stomp rocket that can be launched over and over.

In this exciting activity, we will make a stomp rocket that you can easily build. Depending on our Zoom options, we may even go outside and launch rockets together. Of course, we will also learn about the physics of rockets. No astronauts will be harmed in the launching of these rockets.

Glenn Kachmar Learn more about me

Hello, I'm Glenn. I have had a lifelong interest in science, technology, nature, math, building things, & much more. Perhaps what makes me unique is that when I dress as a mad scientist, my friends tell me it's not a costume. Hope to see you in my classes. Until then I need to work in my secret lab on my d̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶r̶a̶y̶ hamster maze.

I regret to admit that I have eaten a brain sandwich...
