July 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am July 14, 2023 @ 4:00 pm EDT

It is rocket science!

Let’s learn about rockets in flight and the four forces that act on them: weight, thrust, and the two aerodynamic forces, lift and drag.

Kids will be:

  • ★ making sled kites to learn about drag,
  • 🛰 experimenting with a Pop Can “Hero Engine”, making, designing
  • 🚀 launching a bottle rocket, and tracking its flight of our rocket with a homemade Launch Altitude Tracker.

Focus on Women in STEM : Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Lillian Todd & Mary Jackson.
