Wonderstruck: Rocket Science Show!

Wonderstruck: Rocket Science Show!

Posted on behalf of Bath Taps into Science Festival

So how does a rocket engine work?

Well, this show has all the answers. It also explains the difference between solid and liquid propellant motors and follows the history of rocket science from the days of the Ancient Chinese to modern space tourism.

All of this is accompanied by fireballs, rapidly burning fuels a demo of our very own hybrid rocket motor and a ride for one lucky volunteer in our very own 2 metre long rocket car!                                                                                

Content Warning: Loud noises and explosions.                                                                                                

Wonderstruck believe that STEM learning should be as practical, creative and collaborative as possible. They don't sacrifice education for the sake of entertainment, there's plenty of room for both - with a few explosions and fireballs along the way! When Wonderstruck are not in schools, they have also been known to create the occasional STEM resource for museums, government agencies, businesses and universities. Over the years they've worked with the NHS, the Royal Navy, British Antarctic Survey, HM Tower of London, The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the universities of Salford, Southampton, Portsmouth and Surrey amongst many others.
