During MOSI’s three-weekend event build rockets and send them soaring more than 100 feet into the sky.
Tampa, Florida: At MOSI dads will get a free entry on Father’s Day weekend, June 17 & 18, with a paid child’s ticket. For three exciting weekends leading up to Independence Day, visitors can enjoy MOSI’s Rockets’ Red Glare Festival on June 17 & 18, 24 & 25, and July 1 & 2.
This is also an opportunity to meet real rocket engineers from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on the festival’s first day, Saturday, June 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They’ll show you how to design, build, and launch your own rocket made from paper up to heights of more than 100 feet!
This paper rocket launching fun will continue on every weekend day during the festival, led by the staff of MOSI’s Idea Zone makerspace.
During the festival days, MOSI’s STEAM Team (STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), will give live demonstrations into the science that makes fireworks light up the sky.
“Our giant summer experience Cardboard Space Adventures has been a huge hit, with families coming to MOSI and using their imaginations to explore and build a whole galaxy of ideas. This festival is a way to inspire even more of that creativity during the three weekends from Father’s Day through the Fourth of July,” said Grayson Kamm, MOSI Communications Director.
With MOSI admission visitors can get access to MOSI’s Rockets’ Red Glare Festival and MOSI’s summer exhibit Cardboard Space Adventures, where families help create a huge outpost in outer space, made out of cardboard — exploring a towering space station, alien base, and maze; building cardboard machines; and even playing a giant Space Invasion video game using cardboard game controllers.
Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry –MOSI, is a scientific playground with more than 450 hands-on activities in the largest science center in the southeastern United States.
