Can you build & launch a Straw Rocket that will hit a target 5 feet away? To build a basic Straw Rocket, you will need 1 regular straw 1 big (bubble drink) straw masking tape or duct tape
Thank you to Frugal Fun for Boys & Girls for this project!
1) Cut a piece of the big straw and tape one end. This is your rocket.
2) Place your rocket over the regular straw and blow through the regular straw to launch it.
Did your rocket hit the target? How can you improve your rocket? Should you add fins? How many? What material? Should you add weight to the nose? How much? Should your rocket be shorter? longer? At what would angle should you launch?
Use your creativity and problem solving skills to build an awesome, accurate Straw Rocket!
