15-Minute Family STEAM Activity

Balloon Rockets

This experiment is geared toward families with kids ages 3 & up. Thrust is a pushing force created by energy.  In a real rocket, thrust is created by the force of burning rocket fuel as it blasts from the rockets engine – as the engines blast down, the rocket goes up.  We will explore this concept using balloons & other household items.

Registration for materials is required for each experiment you would like to try, limited quantities are available and will be reserved for those who have registered. Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their experiment materials through scheduled Curbside Pick-up. Science materials can be picked up at the library Monday-Friday during the week that experiment is featured, only at pre-scheduled times. 

To register for a  materials kit, please email attleborokids@sailsinc.org or call 508-222-7820 during the week of November 9. The last day to register and schedule a pick up time for these materials will be Saturday November 14.
