The Rocketry Challenge Starter set is designed to bring you into the adventure of competition rocketry. The first step to succeeding in these competitions is learning how to build, finish and launch a model rocket! The Rocketry Challenge Starter Set comes complete with 12 Estes Alpha rockets, 12 B6-4 engines, 2 LifeTime Launch Systems, and a pile of stickers to make each rocket unique.
Learn the basics of building, finishing and painting a model rocket, then fly with the LifeTime Launch System!
The Estes New Shepard is a 1/66th scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard launch vehicle. It flies to altitude on a C5-3 or C6-3, and is capable of as much as 400 ft. It too, after deploying the capsule, falls through the atmosphere under a large parachute to gently touch down. Like the Blue Origin New Shepard, you can fly the Estes New Shepard again and again.
Standing taller than the Statue of Liberty and with more thrust than the mighty Saturn V, the NASA SLS (Space Launch System) is ready to take humanity back to the moon and on to Mars! This highly detailed scale model comes pre-finished and ready to launch.
Includes an easy to assemble rocket with all pre-colored parts, launch equipment, two different engines, four starters, four starter plugs, twelve squares of recovery wadding and one Mini AltiTrak Altitude Tracker! Everything you need to conduct your very own “STEM experiment”!
LAUNCH SYSTEM INCLUDED.
INCLUDES 2 ENGINES! (1 B6-4, 1 C6-5)
The Estes Alpha has been the first rocket for millions for over 36 years! This easy-to-build, high perfomance rocket is the perfect model to get you started. Simple, dependable, great looks and excellent performance. The Alpha has it all!
A true classic, the Alpha III was the first rocket in the beginner series. Designed with pre-colored parts and self-stick decals, you’ll be ready for liftoff in minutes. Whether you’re a first timer or a long time flyer, the Alpha III should be in everyones’ collection.
The Green Eggs provides 12 payload-ready rockets for an ‘egg-celent’ mission-driven launch experience. The Green Eggs challenges students to loft an egg high into the air and recover it safely. The eggs are intended to simulate the fragile conditions of astronauts during orbital flight, and are used in rocketry competitions world-wide. This payload rocket gives you the opportunity to increase data collection in your classroom with tools like the Estes Altimeter!
The Estes Alpha III is a new take on the original favorite, the Estes Alpha. This neon-orange rocket was developed to make exciting launch experiences more accessible to students of any skill level. As the first kit to be added to the line of beginner rockets, we wanted to make sure that the Alpha III was easy enough for even the newest rocketeers to ignite their dreams.
The AVG Bulk Pack comes with twelve of the Estes favorites for a classroom environment: 4 of the Alpha, 4 of the Viking, and 4 of the Generic E2X rockets.
The Alpha, Viking and Generic E2X rockets utilize a variety of fin shapes and airframe sizes, and together these rockets are responsible for millions of successful rocket launches. They’ve been used by schools, scout groups and hobby organizations to provide an engaging entry into rocketry and a clear demonstration of the scientific principles at work.
Add the spice of variety to your rocketry activity!
Spans 2 difficulty levels, the perfect kit for every student!
The Estes Alpha is the most popular rocket for educators and has been for the last 40 years. It remains the educators first choice because it has a history of safe launches, each student can make it their own, and it is flexible enough to teach a wide variety of valuable STEM principles. All this bundled around an unforgettable experience that will certainly go down as one of the best days of the year. Millions of people remember their first launch with the Estes Alpha.
The Generic E2X is a blank canvas. We’ve included some decals to spice things up, but this rocket is all white for a purpose! It’s a blank page to the artistic, and a rocket the students can truly make it their own.
Although cleverly disguised as an art project, this rocketry activity allows students to dip their toe into rocketry activities, learn the fundamentals of flight, and experience the excitement of a launch themselves!
