We know that it’s very difficult to get students excited about STEM and to bring fun, straightforward, engaging, and affordable activities into the classroom. RocketBox™ is our answer to this problem. RocketBox™ provides you all of the required materials and step-by-step instructions to teach your students standards-based curricula while building and flying real rockets!
RocketBox™ contains the following reusables:
- Four full-color printed lessons with examples and solutions (see our Curricula page)
- 5 modular model rockets (see our Meet The Rockets page)
- Launch pad and controller (and battery)
Rocketbox™ contains enough of the following consumables for 5 launches:
- Streamer and elastic (streamer recovery system)
We recommend this kit for teachers who will use it for one class at a time. If done in groups of 5 students, each kit can support 25 students. After use, you just need to get more motors, cutting down cost and turnaround time. With that capability, several teachers can share a single kit.

These aren’t your father’s rockets!
The rockets included in RocketBox™ are our own design and are built in-house with 3D printers. These rockets are modular and reusable. This means your students can build them (quickly and without glue, blades, or tools), fly them, and then you can disassemble and store them for next time.
Each kit includes five unique of rockets. Students can explore the rockets’ physical differences that lead to differences in flight performance. While novel, we have painstakingly developed and verified both the rockets and the manufacturing method with analysis and testing.
For more information, see the Meet The Rockets page.
RocketBox™ includes approximately four lessons of instructional material covering motion, the scientific method, and (of course) rockets!
For more information, see the Curricula page.
This product is not suitable for children younger than 13 years of age.
We try to make sure every kit contains yellow, magenta, blue, orange, and white rockets, but colors may vary.
