Brace yourself – we have some exciting rocket science in-store for you! Explore principles of rocket propulsion and the forces involved.
Sketch plans for your own water rocket and build a sextant. Everything builds to the finale launch, where a water rocket is launched up to 30 meters high.
Angle of elevation, flight path trajectory, streamlining and basic aerodynamics is discussed. Launch requires access to an outdoor space and appropriate weather. In the event the rocket can not be launched a video of a launch is watched and discussed indoors.
90 minute workshops also include these activities:
