January: Rockets and Robotics
Friday, January 5, 2018

Blast off! It’s rocket science this First Friday at Chabot. Learn what it takes to launch a rocket into space, operate a robot, and even how to make a rocket from things in your pantry! Meet local rocketeers and shake hands with Chabot’s own robot, Fritz.

Project Create Activity Space:
Project Create is a place where families create together to spark their curiosity and love of making. Imaginations will be stimulated as our makers think of new ways to tinker with materials we see every day making them better, different, or new.
