Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

The Aquapod is the most exciting and safest bottle launcher available! Not only does it launch a bottle up to 100 feet in the air, but no other launcher has a built in safety valve that releases pressure at 50 psi in order to keep everyone safe!

Just fill a 2-liter plastic bottle half with water and secure it over the white launch tube upside down. Using any ordinary pump, pressurize the Aquapod through the valve stem until the check valve inside the front leg releases pressure and water. Then, stand back with the strap in your hand that is attached to a 15 foot string and give a short, quick tug on the string to launch the bottle high into the air!

2-litre plastic bottle and pump not included.

Measures approximately 13” x 7.75” x 13.5”.
