Blast Off to Learning Fun In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. Some painting, gluing and sanding are required for the Alpha. Quality Estes body tubes, laser cut wood fins, molded plastic nose cone and self-stick decals make for an afternoon of building enjoyment with this Skill Level 1 kit.
