3...2...1...Puff! (rocket stability)
Students construct small “indoor” paper rockets, determine flight stability, and launch the rockets by blowing air through a drinking straw.
The "3...2...1...Puff!" activity is from the Rockets Educators Guide. Although grade levels are suggested, small modifications will enable more complex activities to be used successfully with other grade levels for observation, demonstration or complete lessons.
