Description

The 2018 North Pennines Stargazing Festival

Come along to build and launch an air powered stomp paper rocket - how far will it fly? to infinity and beyond?

Have fun designing, building and launching your own stomp paper rockets (as well as taking it home afterwards) All materials will be supplied.(Launchers are not included)

To start we will begin to learn the principles of air powered rocket flight using Straw Rockets. Once you have designed, built tested and modified these small rockets we will move onto the much larger stomp rockets.

Once you have built your stomp rocket you will experience the fun and excitement of launching it! Experiment with Isaac Newton’s laws of motion to see how high and how far your rocket can travel. As these rockets can fly for several hundred feet and in excess or 30mph these will be launched outside. (apart for the early testing in the design stage)

The owner of the paper rocket which flies the furthest (one per session) will win their very own rocket kit. Suitable for ages 5+.

Midway through the event we will have a have a break for complementary juice for the children with an opporunity to look at some meteorites!

This is a ticket only event with limited numbers giving you more time to focus on the design and build of your rocket - we will have a low power indoor launcher that can be used for test flights
