You will even have a chance to see Earth from the perspective of astronauts on the International Space Station.

GroundStation Canada Show

What goes up does not necessarily come down. How do rockets get up there in the first place? Students participate in this live demonstration of the basic principles of Newton’s Laws of Motion and its use in rocketry.

Hands On Workshop  

Space Launch Challenge
How do scientists and engineers go from idea to end result? In this workshop, students will apply basic concepts of physics and design to prototype and launch a simple rocket. 

NOTE: Groups of three students will work together and each group is required to supply their own 2-litre plastic pop bottles. Program has an outside component - rain or shine.
