Super Science for Super Seniors at LIFE Armstrong County

Published: Thursday, June 09, 2016

As part of a monthly educational series, participants at LIFE Armstrong County learned about the drag and thrust of rockets through a simple activity using balloons, a straw and string. 

"I love doing activities like this with them," said Robin Bowser, recreation therapy manager at LIFE Armstrong County. "The participants really get into learning about science and ask some really great questions," she said. Bowser's stepson, Parker, taught a mini-lesson on how the experiement relates to the actual launch of a rocket.

Other topics have included surface tension and electromagnetics and force.
