  Aim for the sky and try not to miss!
The ultimate classroom tool
Model #: ED001

Teachers and youth group leaders alike will agree that this is one indispensable tool for explaining just what goes on inside a model rocket motor!

Explain the function of the nozzle, how an igniter gets installed, what the propellant does and how it starts the delay charge, and MORE!

8 1/2" long and over 2" in diameter, this Cut-Away 

motor is a perfect classroom display piece.  Its sturdy construction also makes it suitable to pass around the classroom or group so that everyone can get a good look at the internal workings of a model rocket motor.

The design of this kit also allows you to remove the upper section containing the Delay and Ejection charges and the "clay cap".  This effectively makes the model a "Booster Motor", allowing you to explain the function of these specialized motors too!

See below for several photo's and illustrations of this unique model.  Makes a great conversation piece as well as a wonderful and easy to use tool for introducing and explaining model rocketry.  Also, below you will find a wealth of available downloads to augment your model of a Cut-Away Model Rocket Motor.  These additional tools can help make your next model rocketry class the best ever offered!

Featuring precision laser cut parts and clearly illustrated instructions, this model is rated as a Skill Level 2, Intermediate and should not be beyond any adult or rocketeer with minimal experience.
