Rocketman

Thrust, air flow, wind resistance, terminal velocity, apogee, deceleration, force. These concepts are always easiest to understand first hand, by making and testing. The Rocketman gives students this hands on experience and nothing beats the excitement of a student seeing their design launched skywards. The launcher boasts a solid construction - designed for the rigours of the school environment, providing repeatable and reliable launches. Students can vary the launch angle accurately to optimise the flight time.
