Build four balloon-powered vehicles and learn what makes
Some people say "it''s not rocket science" when something is
easy to understand. Around here, we think that saying is kind of
strange. Rocket science isn''t difficult. In fact, it''s as easy as
blowing up a balloon and letting go.
Rocket Science for Airheads delivers rocket-propelled
fun in the form of four easy-to-assemble vehicles. Young speed
demons can race a sturdy, cardstock hot rod across the floor, glide
a hovercraft over the dining room table, take flight with a
helicopter, and blast off with an only-from-Klutz balloon-powered
rocket. Tweaking, tinkering, and experimenting are guaranteed.
Inside the book, super-clear building instructions and
scientific explanations make hands-on experience with rocketry and
jet propulsion as easy as child''s play. Plenty of real-world
examples show that the principles demonstrated here aren''t only
rad, they''re relevant. Altogether, Balloon Power brings a
breath - make that a blast - of fresh air to Isaac Newton''s famous
Laws of Motion. Turns out rocket science is way too much fun to
leave to the rocket scientists.
Comes with: 4 plastic parts (2 mouthpieces,
thrust vent for hovercraft, blast cap), straws for blast pipes, 8
wheels, 4 axles, one hot-rod body, one hovercraft body, rocket fins
and tube, helicopter blade assembly, three 9" balloons, two 6"
balloons, sticker sheet.
