Will the weather be good enough to launch our rockets?

Rocket Day (Ages 8–10)

Duration: 6 hours
Workshop8 - 10 Years
10 & 20 January, 10am–4pm Sydney Observatory Book Tickets

This is a one-day workshop running at Sydney Observatory.

3… 2… 1… BLAST OFF and be a rocket scientist! Start the day by constructing and decorating your own rocket to take home, along with plans for a launch pad pump. While these dry and set, pilot a simulator game to design, build, launch and fly your own digital rockets. Finally, finish the day on a high by launching our pre-made rockets with an altimeter sensor that records the height of each rocket. Challenge your newfound rocket skills and return the rockets closest to the target recovery zone. Weather permitting we will also look into space with the Observatory’s awesome telescopes!

Bringing lunch is essential as there is no cafe on site.

Please be sure to read our essential information for The Lab workshops.
