Design and make your own realistic rockets and launch them safely to heights of up to 100 metres.
The Rocket Factory offers a unique alternative to solid fuel rockets and other systems for those who want to design, make and investigate the characteristics of small rockets.
Its great advantage is that it offers near solid fuel rocket performance at zero cost per launch!
The rockets are made by rolling paper around a plastic tube and attaching a plastic nose cone. The rockets are propelled using an electrically–controlled compressed air launcher which gives near–chemical performance.
The Rocket Factory Starter Pack includes a complete Rocket Factory plus rocket rolling mandrel, nose cone mould with hot melt glue gun (for injection moulding nose cones) and a pack of 30 assorted coloured soft plastic nose cones. Requires 2 alkaline PP3 batteries.
A comprehensive booklet is supplied with the kit, full of ideas and suggestions for using the Rocket Factory with students.
