Rocket Day


Bring your junior Rocket enthusiasts out for a day of rocket launches and a mission to the Moon! Kids learn about rockets and how they work, build a water rocket and then launch it. The rocket is theirs to keep!

After the launches, we blast into space aboard the S.S. Observer for a simulated spaceflight. Kids become astronauts and use teamwork and problem-solving to accomplish their mission.

  • Next Rocket Day: TBD
  • Time: 10 a.m. to noon
  • Pricing: Children: $30; Adults: FREE
    The George Observatory is located inside Brazos Bend State Park. Park Admission fees: Adults and children over 12 years old are $7 per person; children under 12 are free.

The mission is most appropriate for ages 7 and up. Children ages 7-9 need an adult present.

While you’re here, explore Brazos Bend State Park! With six lakes, plenty of hiking trails and a fantastic nature center complete with a hands-on gator discovery display, there’s plenty to do and see.
