Rockets & Spacecraft

We shall spend the first 30 minutes to lay the foundations of rocket science and aviation. A brief historical perspective will be presented along with a visual presentation of major space missions and innovations in aviation. The four forces of aviation will be introduced and the theory of flight explained. Newton's III law will be used to explain how rockets work and common misconceptions cleared.

DIY Paper Glider 

Making paper gliders offers a unique combination of science and origami. The precise and careful foldings of the glider are dictated by the principles of flight. We will focus the next 30 minutes of the workshop to make the beautiful KETCH. This exotic glider is certain to impress your friends. Keep in mind that this will not be an easy activity and demand patience and concentration. Colour papers, rulers for measurement and pencils for marking the foldings will be provided.

DIY Air-Powered Rocket

In the last 30 minutes will have a demonstration of our famous Air-Powered Rocket (APR) also known as Pneumatic Rocket. Every kid will get a chance to launch the rocket and we request them to wear shoes for this activity. We will start with a brief discussion of the construction and working of the rocket launcher. Everyone will be provided with a manual which they can follow to build the APR at home. A kit of materials needed will be on sale for your convenience.

Why Do-It-Yourself (DIY)?

Why Do-It-Yourself (DIY)?

"Give your son a fish, he will eat today. Teach him how to fish, he will eat every day" is a proverb that encapsulates the spirit of Do-It-Yourself and this workshop. We want to provide your child with the confidence and skills to materialise what they imagine- starting from simple models. If a child feels empowered, he or she will grow to be an independent and self-sufficient person.
