Exploring the Solar System: Stomp Rockets @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Have a blast with rockets at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Friday, May 24 at 10:30, 1:30 and 3:30. Learn about how some rockets carry science tools into space, and how a special kind of rocket called “sounding rockets” can be used for quick, low-flying scientific missions into space. Then build and launch your own air rockets to help imagine the challenges and triumphs of engineering spacecraft and launching them into the space above our planet! Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This program is a special preview of Discovery Space, an exhibit full of out-of-this-world fun, opening June 14!

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
