All clear for take-off... Launch this super rocket into the air using the rubber-band powered laucher, then watch the parachute open to float it back down to safety.What a cool combination: parachutes and rockets. And lots of science learning to be had, from repeatable mechanical deformation, forces, to air pressure and resistance. So prepare for some xtreme outdoor flying fun!

Age: 5 +
What you get
Rocket is 20cm long. Parachute is made of plastic.
How does it work
No batteries or electrical energy required for this little number. Just pull back the elastic band on the rocket-launcher, and release. Whoosh, off it goes!In scientific terms, the launching of the rocket is an example of repeatable mechanical deformation (energy is stored by bending or deforming the rubber and released when the rubber returns to its original shape). It also demonstrates potential (stored energy), and movement (kinetic energy).

The opened parachute slows the rockets decent as air pushes up against the larger surface area.

  • Trajectories and projectile motion
  • Kinetic and potential energy
  • The difference between potential (or stored) energy and kinetic (or movement) energy.

  • Air pressure and resistance
FAQ
Have fun, but be SAFE. Do not aim the rocket at eyes or faces, other people or animals. Do not use near buildings, overhead cables or in thunderstorms.
