I teach 8th grade science, and I recently purchased something called a stomp
rocket. It is a plastic rocket that you put on the end of a tube. The tube is
connected to a plastic/rubber bladder. You stomp on the bladder, and the
rocket shoots up to about 300 feet. My question is what physics concepts could
be taught using this stomp rocket?
Thank You, Mike Miller
