The Red Mountain Makers of Birmingham have made and launched paper rockets. They take as little as 5 minutes to make and launch using compressed air to an altitude of about 200 feet depending on the pressure used. We have done these at PlayOn Con here in Birmingham and this was a very popular activity. This is simple enough for kids to make and interesting enough for adults also. I attended the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire last year and this event would be a crowd pleaser. The rockets are basically made from a piece of typing paper and tape. We want to have a booth at the faire and we would need a launch area also that is somewhat away from the crowds. We provide rockets.
