Assemble & Launch: A Water Rocket Workshop & Competition

It's already summer time! By now, I'm sure most of the mommies are already busy looking and searching for summer activities to enroll their little ones. Choosing what particular summer course would depend on the interest of the child and are usually topics not taught in school. Aside from that, it's also the best time to bring your kids for an educational trip such as a science museum to reinforce what they have learned in school.

Speaking of science museum, have you visited Philippine Science Centrum lately? Please click here to read more about this interesting place.

If you haven't, now is your chance because this coming May 16-17, 2014, they will be conducting an exciting summer activity dubbed as Assemble & Launch: A water rocket workshop and competition. It's a two-day event aimed to promote interest on Space Science and Physics as well as provide an alternative educational activity for children ages 10 to 16 years old.

Participants in teams of two (2) will be given a workshop on how to make a PET bottle rocket (1.5 L), assemble their own rockets and compete with other teams on accuracy of their work. Prizes await the winners.
