I have the same launch pad and pump, they have been working well for many years. Our 10th grade physical science class makes 20oz rockets every year, then our physics class make the 2L rockets. Thanks for sharing the video. I haven't had time to look further into the parachutes, and that helped me visualize it.

I am in the exact same situation. I've found that linking chemistry to their daily lives as best you keeps them interested, and of course giving them hands on activities. I've challenged them more than once to find something at home that relates to our topic, obviously not all of them do, but the ones that do help the others see what I'm trying to show them.
