We wanted to announce that Explo, a repeat customer, are adding to the number of our Compressed Air Rocket launchers that they use with their STEAM camps, to prepare for the summer camp season. They have used the launchers for several events, both indoors and outdoors, with a wide range of ages.
Check out the clever custom stand that Dave Hamilton, Creative Director, and Director of the EXPLO Studio, designed and built to replace our wooden stand:
It adds protractors for both elevation and direction, when you also vary the pressure, you can completely control the launch of the rocket. This stand would also work well for an accuracy competition using hula hoop “planets” for completing missions.
Dave has also created several other excellent teaching tools, such as these great looking vertical wind tunnels, shown here being used to experiment with parachutes:
