Rockets are always a student favorite! This STEM challenge pack includes a paper straw rocket activity, straw rocket engineering design challenge using a Pitsco launcher, student handouts, and extension problems on variable testing and test result comparison.
Topics covered in rocketry STEM challenge:
* Forces & motion
* Engineering Design Process
* Rocket history
* Comparing numbers
* Variables & testing
(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 the farthest flight distance.
(3)Variable Testing: Students test different variables to observe which configuration produces the longest flight distance. Students measure flight distance and use comparitive language and >.<, = to compare test results.
This packet includes:
- Detailed educator guide with links to resources
- Student handouts including rocket history coloring page, forces on a rocket, & parts of a rocket
- Student recording packet for the design and testing phases of the engineering design process
- Math extension questions to compare test results.

About STEM Challenges: Click here to learn more about the 3 Stages of STEM. STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or after school 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 device.
