Get ready for some high-flying fun! Young scientists will investigate the mechanics behind aerospace engineering through an exploration of Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion. What does it take to launch a rocket? Participants will figure it out as they design and launch their own creations.
3-2-1-LAUNCH! Student Engineers will investigate the four forces of flight (thrust, drag, lift, and gravity) and Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion, through hands on explorations. In addition, participants will design and engineer their own flying object. Finally, these young scientists will explore the variables involved in launching their objects.

Registration Fee: $30
Anyone can be an inventor, designer, or engineer! You just need imagination and a few materials. Students will put this to the test in this fun, hands-on session. After an introduction to the science of circuits they will explore the world of littleBits (modular circuitry parts) and use them to complete an open-ended design challenge. Both grade groupings will be exploring littleBits but will have different, age-appropriate challenges. Come think, explore, and create with us!

Requested parties must be registered for the same event and for the same grade level (i.e. a participant in the 3-4 program cannot be grouped with a participant in the 5-6 program). Participants must already be registered when submitting a group request. The form must be completed again for multiple events/registrations.
