How to make a flying rocket by using papers?

In summary, the person has been asked to participate in a Science Fair and needs to make a rocket. They can find instructions on a NASA website and can buy model rockets at a hobby shop. However, they can also ask for film canisters at a photography shop and they are usually free because they recycle them. The person should make sure to ask for the correct type of canister.

1. How do I make a flying rocket using papers?

To make a flying rocket using papers, you will need a square piece of paper, scissors, tape, and a straw. First, fold the paper in half diagonally to create a triangle. Then, fold the two corners of the triangle towards the center to create a smaller triangle. Next, fold the top of the smaller triangle down towards the bottom. Finally, tape the straw to the bottom of the triangle and blow into the straw to launch your paper rocket into the air.
