Estes®, the leader in model rocketry, makes the adventure easy and safe. The major components—rocket, launch controller, and launch pad—are all reusable and designed with safety in mind. Preparing for the next launch is easy. Simply replace the rocket’s engine, starter, and recovery wadding—and your students are ready to rock it again!
Start with the Alpha III® Launch Set (item #752264C) and walk your class through the simple instructions for 24 amazing flights. When your students are ready for the next step, choose a launch set featuring a skill level 1 model. This model type can be customized with a special paint job and other modifications, allowing a student to create a rocket uniquely his or hers. Imagine the possibilities!
