Lift OFF! Build a water rocket and compete!
Open to 3rd-8th graders.
Build a rocket in our museum workshop! Add a parachute, streamers, wings, or fins to keep your rocket aloft. The bottle rockets will be filled partially with water, attached to an air compressor, and then launched off the museum’s launch pad with the guidance of museum staff. Limit one rocket per participant.
The goal of this contest will be to keep your bottle rocket in the air for as long as possible. Compete to win a rocket trophy!
Free with museum admission, pre-registration is required.
Rocket launch is weather permitting. Should the weather be unfavorable, registered participants and Scouts will participate in rocket building workshops.
