An event about hard science and serious fun led by artist Randy Colosky
S.A.S.A. (The Sentient Armchair Scientist Association) presents Lift Off!!! – an event for rocket builders, aficionados and theorists. Together we’ll construct rockets from plastic water bottles and cardboard, fueled by baking soda and vinegar. Like the great space exploration agencies before us, we will briefly discourse on the principles of rocket-propelled flight before honing our rocket-construction techniques.
All ages are welcome to participate. You can bring a rocket to the event or build one there. Club members will receive protective glasses, rubber gloves, water bottles, colored tape, cardboard, fuel for rockets and a special S.A.S.A sticker to apply to your rocket just in case it flies into orbit and needs to be identified by the International Space Station.
