Midlothian Science Festival: Rocket to the Moon

On Friday 18^th^ October, two of Skyrora’s STEM ambassadors, Becky Morris (Corporate Social Responsibility Manager) and Derek Harris (Business Operations Manager) attended the Midlothian Science Festival Rocket to the Moon event at The Glencorse Centre in Penicuik. This was a family event celebrating the 50^th^ anniversary of the moon landings and the team conducted two interactive activities, pop rockets and stomp rockets. With the pop rocket activity, the children were able to design, colour and build their own paper rockets and these were then launched using old film cannisters fitted into the ‘engine bay’ of the rocket and a chemical reaction between water and antacids. The event was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all involved!
