In addition, visitors will be able to participate in a free “Build and Launch” rocket workshop in the second building from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., while supplies last. Children will be given a free rocket kit to build on site and then launch on museum grounds. The launch of these rockets as well as additional demonstration rocket flights is being hosted by Wright Stuff Rocketeers, a local rocketry club. Museum visitors may only launch rockets built during the workshop on museum grounds prior to 3 p.m. The free rocket kits are being provided by the Air Force Museum Foundation Inc. (Federal endorsement is not implied).
For the younger audience, “Storytime” begins at 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. in the STEM Learning Node, located in the Presidential Gallery. Preschool and primary-grade children are invited to hear space-related stories and make a free craft project.
