How to build Paper Stomp Rockets

Stomp Rocket Launcher

Building paper stomp rockets can be a fun way to engage students and your kids in learning about experimentation, designing by iteration, and aerodynamics.  Let me put extra emphasis on fun!!  My kids have really loved this build.    In anticipation for a local arts, technology, and maker festival in Macon, GA, I wanted prepare a small project that would help engage my kids and other young makers.   We first discovered building paper stomp rockets at the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire.   We were instantly hooked!!  As an added benefit, it’s pretty inexpensive and easy to build.

Here’s the instructions we followed to construct our platform.  We made a few modifications since we had extra parts in our garage.

Here’s another design from StockedAboutScience.com .

We can’t wait to share this project with our friends .  If you’re in the Macon, GA area, make sure to join us at the Make End festival.

Middle Georgia Makers and Georgia makerspaces will be exhibiting their projects, art, and crafts on November 14th to 15th at Tattnall Square Park in Macon, GA.   The festival seeks to inspire the next generation of creative tech professionals, creative artists and showcase the economic strengths of the region.

Make end
