The rockets that will be built in this activity include:
- A simple paper rocket launched by blowing into a straw
- A more complex paper rocket launched using air pressure from a bottle
- A chemical rocket launched by a chemical reaction between water and an effervescent tablet
For the bottle-launched paper rocket, you will need to use a 3D printer to print an elbow which attaches the bottle to the rocket. To print this, you can use either: your own 3D printer; a 3D printer at a MakerSpace (or equivalent); or an online service which can print an object from a file.
