Step 1: Materials

All you need are a few house hold items:

-Normal BIC pen (not a click pen)

-Tape, I used duct tape but electrical tape may be better.

- Wide rubber band (this will shoot the ink tube)

Step 4: Shooting the Ink Tube

-place the ink tube in the pocket rocket as seen in picture 1

-Pull back ...

- Release ( bet if you point it a little elevated for maximum distance)

For a 3 min project it is prety good. I didn't think of the pen but I did think of the explotion th power a metal tube.

Not 80 feet. Nope. Not even CLOSE. More like 20 at MAX at ground level. And it is more of a Launcher than a Rocket. A rocket is self propelled, remember?

how do you get the end off? you know, the side without the pen part? I tried scissors, but they didn't work
