Rockin’ Rockets Workshop


Ages: 5-12
Kids will get to do just about everything there is to do with rockets—short of riding one into space! They will go on a wild ride into the fascinating science of rocketry and space exploration and go hands-on to build and launch-safe, non-combustible rockets. Activities include learning about the science and history of rocketry, crafting their own SpaceTime Blaster Rockets, and launching lots of different kinds of rockets.

Are you ready for a wild ride into a Black Hole? Go on a virtual journey to the edge of a black hole and straight into this amazing mystery of the cosmos. Manning their own flight consoles, kids will take a fascinating ride through some of the science surrounding these light-swallowing oddities of the universe and participate in activities such as launching their own Black Hole Blasters, taking the Wormhole Challenge, testing out “extreme gravity,” and more.
