We designed the Star Hopper to provide students a model rocketry experience that reflects sci-fi rocket systems. The Star Hopper is ideal for a classroom of young students who don’t need to get into the construction process, but instead are launching a rocket to learn the basics of rocketry and explore possibilities of a future in STEM. Launching a rocket is an unforgettable experience for young students, and the Estes Star Hopper is sure to make an impact.

The Star Hopper is designed to hit the launch pad as quickly as possible, making it ideal for programs with a limited amount of time to spend on rocketry activities.

  • No Cutting or adhesives required!
  • Build and fly the same day.
  • Futuristic design to excite and inspire!

The Star Hopper in the Classroom

The Star Hopper is all about providing students with an exciting early launch experience that will inspire them to pursue a STEM career. People remember their first rocket launch because it is an eye-opening moment. Using the Star Hopper in the classroom provides an exciting launch experience and shows students that science isn’t always boring. In fact, it can allow you to do some pretty incredible things.

Although the Star Hopper is designed to get you off the ground as soon as possible, you can combine this rocket with additional experiments for expanded learning. Use streamers of different lengths to learn about drag and how that can affect the descent rate or design a lesson around the altitude achieved on the variety of engines the Star Hopper is capable of utilizing.
