In this activity, learners build handheld rockets and launchers out of PVC pipes and plastic bottles. Use this activity to demonstrate acceleration, air pressure, and Newton's Laws of Motion. Note: a PVC cutter, side cutters, PVC cement glue and other tools are required to build this project.
Safety note: These rockets should only be launched in large, open, outdoor areas. [Activity is publicly available through a web crawler capture on Archive.org.]
