Apollo 11 Celebration at the American Precision Museum
FREE FAMILY FUN! LAUNCH ROCKETS & RACE ROVERS!
Energetic and “skyward looking” high school students are invited to build and race lunar rovers in teams that will compete at the museum. There’s space for up to 20 students and five race teams. All materials will be supplied. Lunar racing is FREE, but pre-registration is recommended.
Students ages 8-12 who join the Junior Apprentice Club can learn to design and 3D print compressed air rockets, which will be launched during the lunar rover races on July 20. Activities for the entire family include: experimenting with simple robotics and building rubber band racers and windmills using mechanical assembly kits. Stop by the working machine shop, where this year’s skilled interns will be demonstrating the use of historic and modern machines.
