Ten Dollar Stomp Rocket Launcher

Chris Connors’ 10 Dollar Stomp Rocket Launcher looks pretty cool!

Stomp rockets are a great way to introduce flight, pneumatics, and energy transfer through hands-on learning. Paper rockets are very easy to make, and use “virtually free” materials. This will help encourage multiple iterations and exploration of rocket design. You should be able to focus on the important aspects of building and redesigning the rockets. The rockets themselves are very inexpensive, and there are lots of options for their redesign.

    1. Ditto! I suppose that’s all the justification you need to build one! “I had to build it, so I could see the rockets launch!”

  1. can’t believe that at the end of the clip the rockets don’t get launched,
    what a dissapointment :-(

  2. Making and launching the rockets will be in a separate project post on http://how2today.wordpress.com/ . One of the things I’m doing with this set of projects is to keep each post to a single concept as much as possible. Making the rockets will have completely different tools, materials, concepts and skills than making the launcher.
