Last century, the effort to put humans on the moon inspired a whole generation of scientists and engineers. More recently, we have been captivated by new discoveries made by robots on Mars. Our internet, GPS maps and telecommunications networks all depend on satellites. Whether you’re putting humans on the moon, robots on Mars, or satellites in orbit, you need rockets built by rocket scientists.
This kit is, in fact, about rocket science. But that doesn’t mean it’s difficult or boring! Physics comes alive in this action-packed series of experiments centered around a specially designed “stomp-on” rocket launcher with three foam rockets. Launch water-powered and air-powered rockets to learn about action and reaction forces. Build a balloon-propelled rocket, boat and race car. Play a game to try to hit target “planets” with the foam rockets. Explore the physical principles of gravity and inertia. Learn about air pressure. Read about the different vehicles humans have used to escape Earth’s gravitational pull.
The full-colour 32 page manual covers 18 experiments.
For ages 8 and up.
