It *is* Rocket Science

In Rockets: Educators Guide, NASA provides lessons, activities, and information on basic rocket science and rocket history.  Lessons include making and flying paper rockets, investigating ways to increase the power of rocket fuels, estimating the altitude a rocket achieves during flight, and demonstrating how rocket liftoff is an application of Newton’s Laws of Motion.  Activities emphasize hands-on science, prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork, and problem solving.
