Make a Model Rocket, July 10

Wednesday, July 10, 3 pm – 5 pm, Ages 8+

Delve into the world of space engineering. Explore our solar system before venturing out into distant galaxies. Through illustrations and group experiments, learn about orbital velocity, stages of a rocket, Newton’s Third Law of Action and more. Then make your own cardboard model three-stage rocket. If there is time, students can make additional models, such as spacecraft, the night sky, and constellation viewer. Each registrant receives the 64-page book, “Space: Science Activity Book, 16 pre-scored card sheets, and a pair of nuts and bolts for the model rocket that they will make during the workshop, as well as additional models they can then make at home.

Space is limited. Register early: kha@penningtonlibrary.org Participation fee: $5. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
