Since the introduction of our Flying Film Canisters, you have been asking for a way to buy the clear plastic launchers. After consulting with NASA and performing numerous tests on the surface of the moon, we have what you want! These clear plastic tubes are exactly like the tube that comes with the Flying Film Canister Activity Pack. That means this see-through tube makes a perfect launcher for these film canister rockets.

What's Included?
  • 5-pack
    • 5 individual launchers
  • 15-pack
    • 15 individual launchers
    How Does It Work?

    Use these canister launchers along with our Flying Film Canisters. The exploding alka-seltzer in the film canister shoots it through the open end of the tube, making this the coolest thing you can do with a clear tube and a film canister.

    What Does It Teach?

    The combination of the Film Canister Rocket Launchers and Flying Film Canisters is a great way to teach about force, motion, and Newton's Laws. A canister at rest will stay at rest until‚ POP!

Customer Reviews

Worth purchasing Review by Carla

Purchased these with the film canisters and it was a hit at my son's 9th birthday party.

It made launching the film canisters fun and more importantly safe.

The boys loved it, the adults did too! (Posted on 4/3/13)

Worked Well Review by Melanie Kost

These did not come with any instructions, and I was unable to find any online. We just loaded the film canister and inserted it upside-down into the tube and it worked very well. The kids loved them! (Posted on 3/20/13)

No instructions Review by Bonnie Kelly

When I purchased the film canisters, it was recommended I buy these. Figured they somehow would make a good addition to the party I was throwing. They arrived and didnt have any sort of instructions on what the heck to do with them. I had to search out online for some instructions. Once we figured out, they were AWESOME and super fun!

Thank you! (Posted on 2/15/13)
