Paper Rockets

Rockets Away is an activity mostly for kids but fun for everyone. During the activity, you construct and launch a rocket made from simple construction paper. Paper rockets teach all the principles of rocket design...thrust, drag, aerodynamics...without the danger of explosive propellants. Rockets fly over 100 feet from our compressed air launchers out on the DinoSpace grounds.
