STEM Saturday: Model Rockets

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Design, tinker and create in this STEM workshop for the whole family. Explore the engineering process, construct your contraptions, then take them home! One project per family. Construct your own rocket then blast it off this Father's Day weekend! Instructors will take you step-by-step through the process and show you how to customize your rocket however you'd like. Go through the science, too: how we can use aerodynamics and Newton's third law of motion to maximize our launch distance, plan our trajectory, and hopefully recover the rockets after they fly hundreds of feet into the air! All materials included. Recommended ages 8+ with adult supervision.
