Penrith Observatory: Hands On Workshop-Rockets

Speaker – Ms Raelene Sommer A workshop designed for children ages 4 – 12 but lots of fun for all ages. Build and launch paper rockets using compressed air and watch a demonstration of a model rocket launch. Includes presentation, short 3D movie and safe viewing of the Sun through a telescope (weather permitting). PLEASE NOTE: Parents/carers to remain with children at all times. All attendees (parents/carers) require a workshop attendee ticket ($12).

We encourage any adults that wish to participate in building and launching a rocket to purchase additional rocket kits ($5) to join in the fun. All children must have a child ticket which includes the rocket kit ($17). All children are expected to participate in building and launching a paper rocket.
