Stomping into space

       Space Foundation volunteer Brendan Curran (left) provides compressed air for the “Stomp Rockets” activity – using paper rockets to demonstrate aerodynamic principles and thrust requirements – at the Space Foundation’s Discovery Center July 13. Enjoying the hands-on science are sisters Hannah (second from left) and Haley Bingham and their mom, Lori Hoffman. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday, with different weekly themes through the summer. See Westside Happenings for July 20.
