Liftoff!

  • Friday, June 21, 2024
  • Times: 9am – 3:30pm
  • Ages: 5th – 7th Graders
  • Instructor: Bob
  • Cost: $105
  • Location: Merge Classroom of the Future: 136 S Dubuque Street, Iowa City
Students will be engaged in fun and creative engineering design and problem solving as they construct a simple bottle rocket from soft drink bottles, cardboard, and other materials. The rocket is powered by air pressure and water. We will discuss concepts like Newton’s Laws of Motion, thrust, center of mass, and aerodynamics as students attempt to build a rocket that flies straight and has a working parachute. In the last part of the session, we will walk to a park to launch our rockets!
As part of the day, we will watch the movie October Sky, a true story about a group of young boys in the 1950’s who design and build rockets while living in a small coal mining town in West Virginia.

Pizza lunch will be provided. Students may bring their own lunch if they prefer.

Early drop (8:15-9) and Late pickup (3:30 – 4:15) available for this class for $15. 

GoldCap staff will meet parents outside of Merge to assist with pick-up and drop-off. Following registration, additional materials will be emailed to gather additional information about each student, and provide specific information about drop-off, pick-up and/or additional logistics as needed.

Thank you for choosing GoldCap!
