This exciting one day activity gives students the opportunity to take on the role of a rocket scientist, to build and launch flying model rockets that are powered by real rocket fuel. Starchaser’s Rocket Propulsion Lab will also provide interactive demonstrations, videos and activities to show Starchaser’s development of rocket engines.

A series of spectacular experiments will demonstrate how forces and basic physical laws apply to the challenge of space flight and the importance of chemistry for rocket propellants to enable students to understand the complexities and challenges of reaching space. SKYBOLT, a flight test rocket for Starchaser will be there on the day for a close up view of a real flight experience.

*Students are requested to bring a packed lunch.
