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!

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!
