Penn Dixie invites rocket enthusiasts and astronomy buffs to join us for Rock-it on Saturday, September 17th, from 10 am – 1 pm! Design and build your own rockets with the help of Moog engineers and support from Buffalo Astronomical Association. Guests will learn about rockets and how they work, how different sized model rockets are launched, and learn about the history of space flight. Explore our solar system with astronomy themed crafts and activities.

Rock-it activities are included with admission and FREE for members. No registration needed. All ages welcome.

Please note that Scouting Rocks! is also happening on the 17th, which means that Scouts can visit Penn Dixie for free! Some form of official scout apparel/insignia is required for free admission; a full uniform is not needed. Scouts are able to participate in the Rock-it day festivities for free. Non-scouts are welcome to participate at our regular admission rates. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Full details about Scouting Rocks! can be found here: https://penndixie.org/scouting-rocks/

Thank you to Moog Inc. for partnering with us for this event.
