Here's what you would need.
|Straw||2||5” - 7”||-|
|Blank Paper||2||A4 size||-|
|Scissor||1||Small, round edged||-|
|Duct tape||1||½ inch width||Any other tape|
- Divide the paper horizontally into half.
- Draw a line at the centre of the paper.
- Draw a circle using the tape roll at the upper portion of the paper.
- Draw a horizontal line of 9cm in length .
Step 3: Draw a vertical line of 6 cm on the centre point and join it to the two edges of the horizontal line to create a triangle.
Join the three corners to form a triangle.
Step 4: Cut the paper into half on the line we drew in 'Step 1'.
Step 5: Let's cut the triangular and circular parts out.
Step 7: Pinch either one of the sides of the rolled paper and bend it over. Then tape it.
We want to block either one of the openings so that the air can not escape through both ends of the rocket.
Step 8: Mark a centre point on the circle and draw a line from this point to any point on the circle.
Step 9: Cut on the drawn line and bend one the sides out. Then overlap it to the other side to turn it into a cone.
We want our rocket to have a pointy nose so that it can cut through the air easily.
Let's assemble all the rocket parts!
- Take out a piece of tape.
- Make a loop out of it.
- Stick it to the top of the rocket body (pinched end).
Step 12: Attach the fins to the rocket body.
Fins help to maintain stability during the flight.
Time to take our first flight!
- Insert a straw at the open end of the rocket body.
- Hold the straw in your hand and blow in it to see the rocket launch into space!
Let's prepare a test report for our rocket.
To do so, go to the 'Resources' tab and get the 'Test Report' printed.
Let's find the range, our rocket can fly to!
