Science Saturday – Rocket Science!

Air Burst Rocket used for live launch.

Welcome to the Rocket Science themed Science Saturday! As we have our eyes toward the sky trying to glimpse the International Space Station and the Dragon capsule that brought astronauts up on May 30th, or the NEOWISE comet that has been gracing the horizon for the past few days, we are reminded of how awesome space is and how the journey to get there has been full of challenges and rewards.

We hope that you have been able to play with your rocket themed science kits that were handed out last week! If you missed out, you can still participate! Download all the instructions for all the experiments here (for Spanish translation click here)! Below you can find a two fascinating videos of the bubble powered rocket experiment. Check out more experiment videos from the Ott Planeterium too! #randomactofscience
