Pop Goes the Rocket

3…2…1… Launch! Rockets rely on a chemical reaction to generate the power to fly as high and far as they do. This workshop will include making an easier version of rockets and discuss how they can fly. Participants will be able to decorate a mini rocket of their own that we will launch, before you get to take it home!
