Rocket Mice

Shows & Workshops
Duration: 45 min
Suitable For: FS, KS1

Combining creativity and questioning, this short workshop starts by introducing your children to air power, with the surprising revelation that rocket science is within their grasp! They will then work to make their own rocket mouse to launch from our special rocket launch stations (empty plastic bottles).

Each child will have fun designing their own mouse-tronaut, and try to see who can launch their mouse the highest. With different sized launch stations available, they will be tasked with figuring out which works the best, comparing their results with their peers and justifying their reasons.
