SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

This program needs space for students to build paper rockets and a large area, such as a cafeteria or gym, to launch them. We are able to launch outside in good weather, but please reserve an indoor space in case of bad weather. This program also requires 30 minutes to set up and 30 minutes to break down.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Blast into physics! As the engineer, you will go full throttle and experiment with the basic principles of flight and motion. Design, create, and launch your own paper rocket. Hey, it's just rocket science. Also available as a 60 minute class. Sponsored by United Launch Alliance.

Spanish-speaking educators may be available upon request.
