Activity Rocket is excited to participate in the NOVA Mini Maker Faire this weekend. Guests that stop by our table will make paper rockets that they can launch at home. Want to make your own Rocket and launch it? Read on from Tom Heck:
Step One: Download a step-by-step video showing how to make the rockets out of a paper template here as well as a paper template: http://www.tomheck.com/2013/10/rockets-.html.
Step Two: Build one of two rocket launchers below – the stomp rocket launcher or the high-powered rocket launcher.
