  • No Comments

Contributed By


With adult assistance and supervision, learners construct a launcher for use with the High-Power Paper Rocket activity. Using air pressure, large paper rockets can be launched to altitudes of between 50 and 100 meters. The launcher is easy to construct and requires few skills. The parts are available from a hardware or plumbing supply store and are inexpensive.
