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.
1 Your Guide
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.
