Get a lesson in rocket science

rocketIt’s not rocket science. Well, actually it is, at least an introductory lesson to the topic. The Tecumseh Public Library hosts a program that is all about Rockets, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 29 for teens.

Representatives from the Pottawatomie County OSU Extension Service will introduce the principles of propulsion and rocket engineering and teens will build their own paper rockets and pop-bottle rockets.

For more information about building your own rocket, try some of the rocket themed materials available at the library.
