Blast off with our most popular program ever: Rockets! Using scissors, duct tape, recycled cardboard and foam pipe we build and launch rockets with a bike pump and a quick-release pressure chamber. Our rockets can launch over 100 feet in the air or be launched on an angle across a playing field. Kids experiment with different pressures in the launch chamber, different rocket configurations and brainstorm why different designs behave in different ways. This program also scales to hundreds of participants as needed so is perfect for community events, school fairs and family reunions.
