Step 1: Materials

Picture of 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 2: Take Apart the Pen

Just take apart the pen.

(you may need to pull the top off using the scissors.)

Step 3: Making the "Pocket Rocket"

Step 4: Shooting the Ink Tube

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
