Rocket Workshop with MOD Kineton STEM Ambassadors
Wednesday 28 October 11am - 3pm
Design and build a rocket and see how far it flies from the pneumatic rocket launcher. This activity is delivered by the STEM ambassadors from MOD Kineton.
We are sorry but you cannot take these rockets home with you. These activities are suitable for 5 years plus with adult supervision.
Please note: This activity is dependent on the availability of MOD Kineton which may, in light of COVID-19, change at short notice.
When you arrive at the Museum entrance look out for our activities QR code to help you explore the collection with our team!
Just scan the code with your mobile device and you can watch a family tour video. You can either follow the tour round the Museum as you watch it, or watch at your leisure back at home.
Don't forget to collect your activity bag from our Collections Centre when you visit.
Due to COVID-19 we can't do all the normal hands-on activities that we enjoy, so instead we have a special pressure rocket activity bag for you to take home.
The bag includes the instructions and materials to make your own rocket. You just need to add the launcher in the form of a milk carton and see how high it goes!
Activity bags are available for ages 3+ and are subject to availability.
