Rocketry STEM Kit


Recommended ages: elementary and older, with adult supervision

This kit provides "beginning" Alpha III rockets (with plastic form-fitted fins - there is no fin development and/or measurement involved in this rocket, so other more difficult rockets should be sought for expanded math and engineering involvement), A8-3 motors - 2 for each rocket, launch pad, controller, curriculum and instructional video to initiate this invigorating program. This program can ignite an interest in national competition in the Team America Rocketry Challenge and lead young people to explore varying careers in aerospace engineering for the future. Experienced rocketry enthusiasts in CAP can lead students to safe explorations of mechanical and chemical engineering careers.  Of course, the desire to build bigger, multi-stage rockets will naturally follow!
