The National Geographic Air Rocket Racers kit lets you compete against your friends to see who can launch rockets higher and farther. Or, work together to combine your launching power and send one rocket soaring extra high into the air! National Geographic Air Rocket Racers bring a whole new level of fun and excitement to classic stomp-powered rockets. Thanks to the dual launch pad, two foot pumps, and patented air valve system, kids can either challenge each other to see who can launch their rocket higher, or work together to launch a single rocket to heights up to 100 feet! Like all National Geographic science toys, education is part of the fun with the included, full-colour Learning Guide. Kids will learn about aerodynamics, projectile physics, rocketry, and more!

What our experts think
Testers were excited to get outside and start playing with the National Geographic Air Rocket Racers. Launching the rockets was fun for the whole family and the children engaged in energetic play when they were with family and friends. They were surprised and well motivated to keep playing when they saw how far and high they could launch the Air Rocket Racers. In addition to the competition and teamwork encouraged with dual modes of play, this rocket set supports learning about the principles of physics related to rocket design. This toy encourages
active, physical play and coordination, scientific curiosity, and socializations via teamwork and fun competition. The National Geographic Air Rocket Racers is an excellent, outdoor family activity and would make a great addition to school and after-school programs aimed to teach about rocket science.
