Rocket Kids Have Blast At Museum

The Strategic Air and Space Museum may just have kick started the careers of the next generation of NASA scientists. The kids, along with their parents and grandparents, made rockets and then launched them on Saturday.

They then could make improvements and try again. The kids learned some engineering, physics and how to overcome a setback. “The whole idea was to take simple things, paper and masking tape, and just turning them loose,” said Ken Schroeder. “That is typically the best science that we can create.”

The Strategic Air and Space Museum will have a different learning activity every month and starting in January will feature one aircraft per month that the public can go through.
