Day Camp – Blast Off!

Tuesday November 5 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Designed for children currently enrolled in grades K through 5.

It’s Blast Off!
1, 2, 3. . . Blast Off!  Take off with us as we explore Newton’s Laws of Motion to understand the technology behind rocket launches.  Experiment with force, mass, and acceleration to find the perfect propellant, design the perfect spaceship shape, and even launch rockets of your own!
During Blast Off! Campers will:

• Test Newton’s Law of Motion with hands-on experiments to understand thrust.

• Experiment with chemical reactions to create fizzing air pressure to propel a balloon rocket

• Design and test our own straw and paper rockets to take home

• Launch high-powered bottle rockets 10 feet into the air!

Participants must bring their own nut-free lunch and snack. Aftercare is from 3pm – 5pm and available for $35.
