Whether youre putting humans on the moon, robots on Mars, or satellites in orbit, you need rockets built by rocket scientists. This kit is, in fact, rocket science. But that doesnt mean its 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- 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 up on the different vehicles humans have used to escape Earths gravitational pull.
