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.
Become part of the new generation of space travel by building your own scale model of Blue Origin’s New Shepard. Experience the engineering that goes into building a rocket when you craft this historic rocket. The New Shepard builder’s kit model is lighter than it’s ready to fly brother. This allows the rocket to soar to cloud busting altitudes of 700 ft. with at C6-5 engine. We are providing a piece of history that inspires kids to dream of a future filled with the wonders of space exploration. The Estes New Shepard model is made possible through a collaboration between Estes and Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future. Thank you for supporting the Club to inspire the next generation!
The Estes® Gnome™ is chrome at its hottest! Standing just a little over 10 in. tall with super shiny chrome and sapphire blue colors, this is one great looking, mini engine powered cloud chaser that can reach altitudes of well over 800 ft. Recovery is reliable with its orange colored streamer for easy tracking after a superfast ﬂight!
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.
Based on rumored 1950s secret project to counter the “flying saucer threat.” The Estes Star Hopper is a no-glue, no-paint Beginner-Level kit that you can build and launch up to 400 feet all in the same day. Features detail-molded plastic parts, atomic-age styling, and a 18-inch streamer for recovery.
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.
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!
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 Gnome comes with just a few components and can be ready to fly in under an hour, making it the perfect rocket for the teacher with a busy schedule who still wants to provide an unforgettable experience to their students. The Gnome snaps together quickly, with minimal glue and minimal cutting. The sleek design and futuristic look will help you create memories your students will never forget.
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!
