The Alpha in the Classroom
The Estes Alpha uses a traditional rocketry structure, making it the intermediate kit to level up your rocketry activities. It’s about the experience for the students, and that’s what set the Alpha apart for generations. It’s about showing a young mind what is possible with a STEM-based education and that future is within their grasp.
Take your Alpha out to the launch field and experiment with a variety of engines and compare the altitude!
It’s not just about how the Alpha can touch a student, but also how active rocketry activities can teach in ways that few things can. It doesn’t feel like a school project, it’s not homework. It’s just doing something awesome. They just accidentally end up learning a whole bunch about the world around them. It’s why millions know the Alpha is #1.
