Build and Launch a Foam Rocket with Fins

Grade Level: 6-8
This activity comes from NASA’s Artemis Camp Experience Educator Guide.  Students will build a foam rocket, design the stabilizing fins for the rocket, and flight test their rocket with a simple rocket launcher.  The goal is to design fins that enable the rocket to fly far, but also stay on the desired flight path.
