Mad Science of Maine will reach beyond the sky to explore aerospace engineering with an explosive rocket launch.

An intelligent robot will display some pretty impressive Kung Fu. Oozing chemical reactions and a demonstration of a space age polymer will make children contemplate the possibilities in chemical engineering. A “sparking” demonstration will electrify creativity, and an experiment with alternative energy will make kids ponder the future.

This program will be held at the Rockport Opera House Wednesday, July 19, at 2 p.m.
