A fun science event was held at the Kuiper Space Sciences Building and one of the feature attractions was that kids could build a spacecraft to launch from the 2nd story stairwell. The trick is that the spacecraft was carrying an egg... success was if you launched your craft, landed on (or near) the "X" on the moon below and DID NOT BREAK THE EGG. Not easy! Check out the materials list and the rules! These kids were great!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
