In The Classroom

The Alpha III in the Classroom

If you’ve used the Alpha III in the classroom, you know the value and excitement that this rocket can bring to your students. It comes together quickly, only requiring a bit of adhesive to assemble the engine mount and attach the shock cord anchor in place.

On the launch pad, the Alpha III stands as a great demonstration of the true basics of rocketry. It shows just how simple a safe rocket can be. Each component has a purpose, and you can leverage those against the principles of flight to show how this small, simple rocket actually utilizes everything that would make a much larger rocket safe and stable in flight.
