Smartivity Blast Off Space Rocket contains all the elements that a child needs to make their own rocket and rocket-launcher, and launch their own missions. The rocket launcher plate has a locking mechanism designed to make the game even more fun.
Use the instruction manual to build the rocket. Choose your launch speed, by stretching and fixing rubber bands to the different notch levels on the launcher. Place the rocket inside the launcher, push down and lock it, release the lock to see your rocket fly!
Experiment with the rocket by varying the weight of the rocket and elasticity of the launch plate to understand the fundamentals of scientific concepts.
Your child will learn...
Gravity is a force of attraction that exists between any two masses, any two bodies, any two particles. It is an attraction that exists between all objects, everywhere in the universe.
The force with which an object near the Earth or another celestial body is attracted toward the centre of the body by gravity. An object's weight depends on its mass and the strength of the gravitational pull.
Elasticity is the quality that something has of being able to stretch and return to its original size and shape. Like rubber bands.
