Rocket science

Our Enabler Darren and his side-kick Alex explain rocket science. Plus make your own exploding rocket at home.

Rocket science doesn’t need to be complicated! Join Darren and Alex as they go on a journey of exploration into the facts behind rocket explosions.

So whether you’re homeschooling, unschooling or funschooling everyone loves explosions! Packed with fun demonstrations and easy-to-understand scientific explanations – this short video brings the Eureka! experience into your home. And because we’re all about hands-on interaction we’ve included a rocket explosion for you to try (with adult supervision).

Watch our video below and get experimenting.

Plus, send us or share your pictures and videos using #EurekaAtHome and we’ll share on our social media feeds too.

Just to let you know we filmed this video in the museum before the COVID-19 outbreak. Eureka! is temporarily closed, find out more information by clicking here.
