Later this month Museum of Science instructors will help kids try a hand at rocket propulsion.

On July 28th, kids will learn the science behind rockets and space exploration in “Rockets: There and Back again”. Participants will then plan, build and test their own “rockets.”

The Museum of Science describes:

In this workshop, audiences create an air rocket that launches across the room, and engineer a way for a payload to return safely to Earth. This hands-on workshop explores the science behind rockets and space exploration. Use your imagination to plan, build, and test your own design.

The program is designed for kids aged 10 and older. 5-10 year olds can also participate if accompanied by an adult.

Since the program is likely to be popular, the library will hold 3 sessions and pre-registration is required.

Session 1: 1:00 – 2:00

Session 2: 2:00 – 3:00

Session 3: 3:00 – 4:00 (This session is reserved for ages 10+ only)

Sign up in the library’s Children’s Room or by calling 508-485-5031.

The program is sponsored by the Southborough Community Foundation.
