Create pneumatic rockets and discover the fun of flying at Enginuity
Half-Term 14th - 22nd February

Design and build a pneumatic rocket from craft materials and discover the fun of flying during the February half-term week at Enginuity, near Ironbridge, Shropshire.

From Saturday 14th until Sunday 22nd February families can join drop-in workshops between 10.30am and 3.45pm where paper, card and plastic nose cones will be used to create model rockets of around 30cm in length. The rockets can then be ‘fired’ through a selection of suspended targets from Enginuity’s pneumatic (air powered) launcher. 

Families will also be able to join in a range of other fun activities and see a display of flight-related exhibits. Activities will vary from day-to-day and some additional costs will apply.
