ROCKINGHAM — Discovery Place Kids is bringing an out-of-this-world experience for its after-hours Science Explorer Series.

The November edition of the series “is about unraveling outer space’s enigmatic wonders,” according to a press release.

“From the mesmerizing phases of the moon to the captivating world of vacuum science, get ready to blast off into a universe of knowledge and hands-on fun,” reads the release.

Young scientists will have the opportunity to build Lego space vehicles, launch rockets, create magnetic fields, and witness the effects of objects in a vacuum chamber.


The Science Explorer Series, “tailor-made for budding young scientists,” is geared for children 9-12 years old.

The Space Science event is slated for 5-8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 3, but this space is limited — not infinite — so planned participants are encouraged to secure their spots.

Cost for the program is $20 for non-members and $15 for members.
