Learn how to make your own straw rocket! We are less than 24 hours away from a new era of human space flight. At 4:33 PM EST on May 27, 2020, American astronauts will travel on an American-made commercial rocket. This is the first crewed launch from U.S. soil since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011. What a privilege it is to live on Florida’s Space Coast to witness this launch from my front yard!
In honor of this historic event, I have a little freebie for you! Make your own rocket using a straw, tape, and paper. The directions page and printable pieces (as shown below) can be found in my free resource library! Click here to join.
Here are some pics of my 6-year-old making his own straw rocket. He played around with it for a long time
