This is the Estes Green Eggs rocket. Put rocket building and launching skills to the test with the Green Eggs Bulk Pack. A crowd-pleasing STEM activity kit for launch parties and science projects, this bulk pack comes with 12 rockets. Each kit includes its own set of instructions.
A perfect science activity for both kids and adults, the Green Egg payload rocket includes a plastic payload section to carry its fragile cargo, a raw egg. The lightly tinted green payload section is transparent so rocketeers can see how their eggstronaunt is handing the flight. Educators, youth group leaders and rocket launch party hosts will love creating an ‘egg-static’ experience as rocketeers work towards making sure their precious cargo returns safely home.

Built to protect, don’t underestimate the slim, yet stately design of the Gryphon. Standing 18 inches tall with a slender diameter measuring just over .5 inches, the sleek sports rocket is strong enough to support the six-inch wingspan of its stealthy cargo, a glider.
Meeting all expectations set by its legendary name, the Gryphon model glider kit will be the “King of the Air”. The Gryphon itself can soar to the height of 700 feet on an A10-3T engine. Upon reaching apogee, a colorful streamer acts as a tracking and recovery device to show where the rocket will land. During that time, the Gryphon’s stealthy glider moves magically across the sky to serve as a protector to everything below and will also gracefully return to earth to be readied for another flight.
Made from lightweight paper tubing and laser-cut balsa, the Gryphon is a great first step above a beginner rocket. In about two hours, plus painting time, rocketeers will build a rocket that will garner attention in both the air and when on display.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, wax paper, fine sandpaper, hobby knife, yellow glue, hobby knife, masking tape, clear tape, primer (white), paint (white, gray), clear coat (optional). Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.
WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II launch pad with launch controller, Estes model rocket engines, recovery wadding and four 1.5V high-quality AA alkaline batteries (not included).
Take learning to new heights with this low-cost technology solution for tracking model rocket altitude. These small, easy to transport altitude tracking devices allow for students to track flight data, analyze and graph! Coming in a 3 pack, this makes it easier on your wallet so you can provide engaging learning opportunities for your students.
Need a savior from a boring classroom, but want to keep it educational? Introduce the Mini AltiTrak to your rocketry activity to engage students in the engineering process. It’s not just about data collection and analysis, but about having the tools and resources to understand what is truly happening when the rocket flies through the air.
The Mini AltiTrak uses a gravity protractor to present the angle from your body to the apogee of your rocket flight. With the distance from the launchpad to your body, use simple geometry to calculate the height of your rocket flight, then challenge your students to engineer solutions to optimize their rocket’s altitude!
