Integrate STEM in your classroom with this super fun Air-powered Firework STEM Activity!

Forget the sparklers! Students design, build, and test their own air-powered fireworks for Fourth of July! They record and graph the results to see which designs fly the highest with each trial launch.

This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Aligns with NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
