Wonderstruck Rocket Show

IT Sligo Hume Hall - Wednesday 13th November - 6.30pm

The Wonderstruck Rocket Show is a rip-roaring scientific romp through the history of rockets and reaction engines in general. The show is crammed with physics and chemistry and laced with a liberal dose of history.

We are pretty sure that this is one of the most spectacular shows you’re going to see. It includes a full-size working Rocket Car, gun powder, the incredibly messy Krispie Rocket, a working jet engine, the Wonderstruck Bed of Doom, more gunpowder, some very loud explosions and a 3 metre fireball.

We guarantee that you will be talking about this show for a long time to come!
