About the Event

Available to visit your school for a full day !

The session starts with an introduction to rocket science which may include demonstrations of some small alcohol-fuelled rockets and the Wonderstruck Hoverchair. Children will work in small teams using their scientific knowledge to

design and build their own rockets. Once complete, we go outside to launch. At full power, rockets may travel in excess of 100 m.

This workshop is available as a one day visit to your school. Suitable for 3rd to 6th classes, a total of 4 workshops per day will be delivered with each session lasting approx. 60 minutes. 

‘Our rocket travelled 90 metres and we were the furthest. I couldn’t even see how high it went!’
