More than 30 demonstrations of 16 model craft
Invent to Learn! Create, Build, and Test Rocket DesignsBy Ed Sobey. More than 30 demonstrations of 16 model craft are outlined here in illustrated, reproducible how-to handouts that list materials, describe procedures, and explain scientific principles. A soda-can engine, balloon-powered rockets and rocket cars, air-jet propulsion, pump rockets, and "implosions and explosions even your mother will like" are all on the menu in a book that aims to "convince the kids that they are rocket scientists and the rocket scientists that they are kids." Grades 4–9. Index. Glossary. Suggested resources. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 106 pages. ©2006.
