Aerojet Rocketdyne LaunchPad
The LaunchPad experience targets teens with a dynamic, interactive STEM enrichment exhibit that promotes possibilities within the STEM subject areas (science, technology, engineering and math) as the students consider college and career choices. A progressive collaboration between the California Capital Airshow, Aerojet Rocketydne and community educators, this massive exhibit allows students and their parents the opportunity to enjoy a hands-on educational experience designed to spark the interest of young adults and their involvement with STEM while helping to provide the aviation and aerospace industries with a new generation of professionals.
Children even have a chance to interact with local youth organizations and academic institutions to learn how they can continue their interest in STEM education, including creating a school-to-career blueprint and information on how to join and pursue STEM-related fun and interesting activities long after the Airshow gates closed.
Kiddie Hawk provides engaging activities for kids, while their parents and guardians enjoy relief from the heat without missing the amazing views of the flight line. This free area is full of education, interactive STEM activities that keep children creating and exploring.
The area also offers free family services including Mother’s Lounge for nursing mothers, diaper changing stations, complimentary water and lost parents area.
