The public museum partners with NASA to create a family fun event

Posted:

The Sioux City Public Museum is bringing families together for the holidays. Offering free activities for a family fun Saturday.

The public museum has recently developed a partnership with NASA. Its goal is to show kids what can be done in outer space, allowing them to explore a unique career path right in their own backyard.

Going to the public museum can be educational and a blast. Earlier Saturday morning, families worked together to build the ultimate rocket; and, the materials they used came straight from NASA. After putting together and decorating their rockets, kids got a chance to see how far their creation could go.

The launching pad, made out of an empty pop bottle and tubes, taught kids the affects air pressure. The harder they stomped on the bottle, the farther their rocket went.

"I was kind of excited because maybe I could be the new world record for mine... but my sister did it." said Ava Adams.

"My dad stomped on the bottle instead of me and it just went clear back," said Adele Adams.

The public museum is excited about their partnership with NASA. They're hoping to continue with the program over the summer with a NASA Space Camp.
