Museum of Science ROCKETS Program

As part of our town-wide One Book One Watertown program, a representative from the Museum of Science taught school-aged kids all about rockets! He explained how rockets work and gave the kids plenty of opportunities for hands-on exploration.

The kids got to try out their understanding of the concepts they learned using balloons and air to make rockets fly!

This was one of the final programs in this year's One Book One Watertown program, celebrating the book Rocket Boys by Homer Hickam, Jr. There's still time to read the book everybody's talking about! Stop in and pick up a copy today!
