Using a Stomp rocket design, and conduct a STEM investigation into the factors that make it go higher and further. A simple STEM Space Investigation.

At the bottom of this page you will find a button to download your FREE STEM Rocket Data Sheet but before you do that I wanted to say a big THANK YOU.

As a teacher it is a joy to see people downloading and using hands-on learning with children whether as a homeschooler, parent or teacher in the classroom.

I hope you have fun with your STEM Rocket Investigation.

Why Hands-on Learning is so important

Discover how hands-on learning can help YOU support your child's learning outside of school and how easy it is to do with them.

Children and adults all learn differently, but the main way that young children learn is through doing. It concretes the learning into their brains in a way that reading, writing, listening and watching just doesn't.

Through Hands-on Activities for all subjects children learn quicker, the information is retained better and they can then apply it in the future to new situations.
