The Museum of Aviation and GPB Education celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11's mission to the moon with a live educational broadcast followed by a stomp rocket launch with the help of children in the Museum's summer camps.

Children enrolled in summer camps at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins got to launch rockets Tuesday morning.

More than 85 stomp rockets were launched by campers in unison at 9:32 a.m. to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon launch.

“Such an exciting way to create a fun STEM activity,” said Melissa Spalding, education director at the Museum.

GPB Education was also on hand for a ‘rocket launch live exploration’ streaming program and filmed the launch.
