Bundle Description
Launch your students into STEM with these rocketry challenges! The ultimate guide to all things rockets, this STEM challenge pack includes 5 different activities using common materials and connects to Newton's Laws and forces along with extension problems on variable testing and graphing.

Topics covered in rocketry STEM challenge:
* Forces & motion
* Newton's Third Law
* Engineering Design Process
* Angles
* Variables & testing

Activites Included:
(1) Paper Rocket Activity: Students make a paper rocket with the template provided and then launch with a smaller straw.
(2) Straw Rocket Challenge: Students design and build a straw rocket to be launched with a Pitsco straw rocket launcher. Students test different variables to achieve a mission: (1) longest distance or (2) hit a target.
(3)Balloon Rockets: Students are on a mission to pop a balloon taped to the wall. All they have is another balloon, string, tape, and various other materials. They will attach materials to their rocket and launch it along a string to pop the balloon.
(4)Heavy Lift Straw Rocket Challenge: Students design and build a straw rocket that mimics the Falcon Heavy rocket. It must hit a target and release a "space car" after launch. Variable Testing: Students select a variable to test in order to optimize for the longest distance.
(4)Heavy Lift Stomp Rocket Challenge:: Students design and build a stomp rocket to be launched with a stomp rocket launcher. You must either purchase a rocket launcher (we used this one: http://amzn.to/2BN8yFN (*Amazon Affiliate Link*)) or build one. Students attempt to achieve the greatest flight time and launch a "space car".

This packet includes:
- Detailed educator guide with links to resources
- Student handouts including Forces on a Rocket & Intro to Rocket Science
- Student recording packet for each step of the engineering design process
- Science extension activities to test and graph how different variables affect distance

About STEM Challenges: STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or afterschool program! These hands-on activities allow students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect science topics to real-world applications. The teacher will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building their own balloon rocket device.
