Straw Rocket

Learn about the forces involved in flight as you create your very own Straw Rocket. Use air pressure from your lungs to propel your “rocket”, then make adjustments to help it fly even farther.

Straw Rocket was part of our Week 6 Theme: Flight. What other projects from this theme did you participate in?
