Water Rokit brings science alive for children of all ages

Inspiring the next generation in STEM through Junior Rocketry

Water Rokit’s Education Portal has been designed to provide teachers, group leaders and all STEM ambassadors with exciting activity content.

From simple Words of the Week through to quick Lessons and more detailed Sessions, there is something for everyone!

The Lessons and Sessions cover a number of subjects relating to Science, Engineering, Rocketry and Space. 

Our first Lessons focus on Newton’s Laws of Motion and Gravity, and Energy stores. With further Sessions in development on The Artemis Missions and other exciting NASA and SpaceX Projects.

Junior Rocketeer Activity Day

Invite Water Rokit and NASA into your classroom, and inspire and motivate your students into STEM learning with action-packed rocket fun!

Through popular demand from schools and activity clubs, Water Rokit has hit the road and gone mobile!

With our Junior Rocketeer Activity Day, you’ll have your very own Rokit Technician for the day to inspire your class into learning STEM.

At last, Water Rokit’s anticipated STEM-inspired Junior Rocketeer video is ready for lift-off!

Welcome to the most exhilarating video that will inspire children into STEM through rocketry all over the world.

Starring children who love STEM and featuring Spaceport Cornwall, we have created a NASA-esq launch to engage children everywhere.

What better way to inspire children into STEM than by children who love STEM?

Every child deserves an opportunity to get excited about STEM. This video will ignite their imagination encouraging them to visualise a future in this awe-inspiring sector.

Watch the video below and spread the power of STEM through rocketry by showing this video in every classroom and club.

Maths + Science = Engineering + Water = Fun

Since the birth of Water Rokit in 1983, we have been exciting rocketeers and space cadets into learning about rockets and science. A British family-owned company passionate about bringing science alive for children and schools throughout the world.

Water Rokit is a fantastic educational toolkit for learning about space exploration, rocket launches, and the physics of forces and motion by taking part in practical experiments. I’d highly recommend it as a teaching aid – not only is the Water Rokit a great educational toolkit, but it’s also a really fun way for students to learn without even realising it. And even better, it’s also fun for the adults teaching it too!

Here is an example of how an organisation has partnered with Water Rokit to design a fun and engaging STEM workshop in rocketry, targeted at children aged 7 - 14 years old.

From the initial meeting with Water Rokit, we knew we had the opportunity to create something special for our customers. Our visions and passions to engage children in exciting content, stretching their minds and imaginations was aligned. The conversation is always alive with ideas, the support provided, and knowledge shared in rocketry is superb.

The Water Rokit product is fantastic, it provides not only an exciting experiment on its own, but it opens the door to a wealth of learning and exploration. We are thrilled to be on this journey with Water Rokit as our partner, the opportunity to not only expand our own knowledge, but to then cascade this down to children and spark that curiosity in young minds is marvelous.

The best STEM educational tool on the market!

How Water Rokit works

Water Rokit has been designed to launch itself automatically at a set pressure, and is engineered to do this repeatedly. This makes Water Rokit perfect to perform science experiments such as exploring Newton’s Laws of Motion, acceleration and trajectory.

The original Water Rokit is a visual, safe and hands-on product which promotes fun and enthusiasm when teaching children of all ages – it’s why so many schools throughout the world have used Water Rokit as part of their core curriculum since way back in 1983.

Salusbury World runs an after-school club during term-time, and a holiday club during school holidays.

What do they think about Water Rokit? Fantastic fun. Our teenage holiday club had several of these - enjoyed by different age groups and great for team building.

The Science of Water Rokit

A squid propels itself by filling its body with water and ejecting it backwards in order to move forwards. This is the principle used by rocket engineers. Space rockets use fuels that are burned in a chamber shaped rather like a bottle, with the neck pointing backwards. The burning fuel produces a large quantity of gas that is further expanded by the heat generated, and this is ejected through the neck (or nozzle) of the “bottle” (normally called the combustion chamber) at a very high velocity, propelling the rocket in the opposite direction.

The Water Rokit, like the squid, uses water as the driving agent, and compressed air instead of heat to provide the energy.

At launch (just before the brass bung automatically releases) the pressure in the bottle is around 18 x 104 N/m2 (or about 25psi). The water is forced through a nozzle with a cross sectional area of about 1cm2, and this produces a theoretical thrust of around 18 Newtons (about 3.9lbs). As the water is ejected, the Water Rokit gets lighter in weight resulting in an increased acceleration or ‘G’ force. Unlike a space rocket, this period of acceleration happens very quickly, taking approximately 1 second for the water to be fully ejected, at around 3 metres (10 feet) of distance travelled. At this height, the Water Rokit is accelerating at about 9 metres per second (around 20 miles per hour), providing enough energy for the Water Rokit to fly upwards to 30 metres (100 feet).
