Inspire kids’ STEM interests through hands-on, exploratory learning with the Alpha III model rocket. One of the first rockets in the Beginner level series, this high flying rocket kit for kids was designed with beginners in mind.
A hands-on educational activity, kids take an active role in the rocket’s construction while using pre-colored parts and self-stick decals.
