Calling future astronauts & rocket scientists!

AGES 9-13

Learn science by creating and launching your own model rockets! Tuesday and Wednesday, we will assemble and finish a complete 20-inch model rocket. Thursday will be launch day, when you are encouraged to bring along a camera and your fan club to document your rocket’s first flight! Rockets will be made from a cardboard tube, with balsa wood fins, and powered by a “B” or “C” Estes model rocket motor. The rockets have parachute recovery, so the student may take the rocket home. Kids return for this program year after year, and the class fills quickly. Min 5/Max 12
