Activities:Rockets

Guests can make their own rockets in the Science Center. Outside the Eyring Science Center, a rocket launching pad will be set up to launch the rockets sky high! Supplies will be provided at the event.

For those who prefer horizontal rather than vertical flight, we will be showing you how to build a variety of paper airplanes. Take them out to our test flight area to see which ones are designed for straight flight and which are trick planes. Measure how far they fly.

We will also be building star charts.
