Girl Fee:

On this First Friday at the State Museum, Curator of Science and Technology, Meredith Nichter, will be taking us on a short tour through the Apollo exhibit to learn all about America’s role in the space race. Take a look at real artifacts and hear all about the trials and tribulations that come with voyaging into the Universe! We will also be making our very own stomp rockets this evening with Education Manager, Ms. Laura Ybarra-Kane. So grab your materials and get ready to touch the sky!

  • A clean 2-liter bottle (no cap needed)
  • ¼”-1/2” tubing to go inside a 2-liter soda bottle (about 1-2ft)
