Launch It!

Explore force, motion, acceleration, and gravity as you experiment with rockets, catapults, paper airplanes, and more. Design a satellite to float in a vertical wind tube during one of our Design Challenges. Investigate how physics and math can help engineer machines that will blast higher, propel farther, and fly longer!

*This course includes an offsite field trip across the street to launch rockets.
