In the Maker Shed: Getting Started with Compressed Air Rockets Kit

Looking for a fun, safe, family oriented project? The Getting Started with Compressed Air Rockets Kit from the Maker Shed is perfect for makers of all ages. Just a few pumps of a bicycle pump (not included) will send homemade rockets blasting 200-300 feet into the air! Perfect for families, schools, neighborhoods, or just for fun. High quality parts are built to last for years and thousands of launches. The rockets are reusable, clean, and can be legally launched on a small field in a big city. Just add a bicycle pump and tape and you’ll be ready to blast off!


The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
