Introduction: How to Make a Straw Rocket AWESOME
you will need a ruler, scissors, straws, bike pump, fins and hot glue gun
(sorry no pic of glue gun, pump and fins they come later)
Step 1: Step 1
you will need to cut your straws at 6 to 8 cm long
Step 2: Step 2
cut out fins like this so that there are 3 fins on the straw
you can make your own but we used fins courtisy by some other dude on instructables
Step 3: Step 3
fold and glue together the fins like so
Step 4: Step 4
put a tab of hot glue into the top of the straw and put the fins around just above the base
let the glue cool then put the bottom of the straw in the bike pump and give it a swift pump and it will shoot upwards
we have used a different pump (electric) which makes it go higher but we fiddled around for a while trying to make it higher.
many thanks who did something very similar (we made a bigger straw)
tell us what you think
Step 6: FIRE
finish AND FIRE THIS BABY
We have a be nice policy.
