This is your chance to design, build and fly your very own rocket on Brighton beach!

Join Jon London, star of BBC’s Stargazing Live, who will be on hand to show your budding astronauts how to build their very own rocket!

Over the 40-minute workshop, you’ll learn how to make a rocket fly, and then put your knowledge to the test in building your very own rocket to take home. After, take your creation on the beach and see if you can beat the record of 120 meters in the air.

Once you’ve launched your rocket, take your newly buzzed Buzz Lightyears up our giant spaceship and see if they can spot how the pod manages to take off to 138 meters in the pre-boarding exhibition.
