Description

Air Power makes rocket science as easy as blowing up a balloon and letting go. This book and science kit in one delivers rocket-propelled fun with four easy-to-assemble vehicles -- race a sturdy cardstock hot rod across the floor, glide a hovercraft over the dining table, take flight with a helicopter, and blast off with an only-from-Klutz balloon-powered rocket. Tweak, tinker, and experiment to make your balloon-powered craft go as fast as can be.

Our book contains super-clear building instructions, scientific principles, and real-world examples that make rocketry and jet propulsion simple. Air Power brings a breath — make that a blast — of fresh air to Sir Isaac Newton’s famous Laws of Motion. It turns out that rocket science is way too much fun to leave to the rocket scientists.

Comes with: 48 page instruction book, 4 plastic parts (2 mouthpieces, thrust vent for hovercraft, blast cap), straws for blast pipes, 8 wheels, 4 axles, one hot-rod body, one hovercraft body, rocket fins and tube, helicopter blade assembly, three 9" balloons, two 6" balloons. Note: balloons contain Latex.

About:
Klutz was incorporated in 1977 by three friends from Stanford University. They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags. John Cassidy, the English major of the group, put the instructions in book form and titled it Juggling for the Complete Klutz.

"It really was a failed scam," explains Cassidy, who remains the creative force of the company. "Our dream was to do a book on juggling, sell a bazillion in a couple of days, buy an island and retire. After a year of steady, unspectacular sales, we found ourselves staring down the barrel of a career."

Today, how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints), and are designed for doing, not just reading. "We think people learn best through their hands, nose, feet, mouth and ears. Then their eyes," Cassidy says.
