ilding My First Rocket
I looked at the store-bought rocket and tried to think of materials that I coulduse to build a rocket that was safe, light, and cheap. Foam pipe insulationwould fit over 1/2´ PVC pipe, would be relatively light and absorb shock. Aping pong ball cut in half would fit over the insulation, this would be light,strong and not pointed. Cardboard could be for the fins and easily trimmedwith a scissors to experiment with different areas. Packing tape coveredthe rocket for stiffness and to make it easier to attach the fins.
