In the second session of a family rocket day, one family built and shot off rockets in the Discovery Lab at the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library. Using the rest of the Estes Gnome rockets, three youngsters and their mother built three rockets. We then went outside to launch said rockets.
The Gnome rocket makes a good first-time project as they are easy to build and can be launched soon after completing.
I enjoy presenting these programs as it is a joy to see the little ones’ eyes light up when the rocket they’ve made launches.
