Tinker Tank: Outdoor Paper Rockets

On Friday and Saturday afternoons, create paper rockets with us in Tinker Tank starting at 1:30 p.m. Then watch how high they fly when you launch them outside near the Building 3 windows from 2:30-5 p.m. Want more info? Listen to this PacSci Podcast.

Looking for something different?

Come check out our maker space Tinker Tank, in Building 3 by the Denny Way windows. Formerly known as The Lab, this bright space offers different staffed, hands-on activities on Fridays and Saturdays from 1-5 p.m.

We experiment with aerodynamics using some wind tables (vertical wind tunnels), gravity walls, cardboard amusement parks, Keva blocks, electric circuits and much more. Saturday through Thursday the space is unstaffed, but open for exploring paper folding with a variety of origami patterns.
