Destination Mars

For students entering grades 2-5

Launch and watch your very own rocket speed 300 feet into the air! Students will make and take home multiple rockets of varying difficulty throughout this session. We will use these rockets and airplanes to investigate basic aeronautical concepts including propulsion, thrust, lift, drag, and more. We will also hypothesize about travel in outer space, how to get a United States astronaut to Mars, and life on Mars. Visit for more information.
