In a special Stories in the Sky event, Melissa Ober, the Science Girl, will be doing a live STEAM demonstration, followed by hands-on activities. The theme is Treasures of a Trebuchet! The program is open to kids of all ages! The demonstration will happen outdoors (weather permitting) and the hands-on activity will happen inside of the Museum's Sky Lounge.

Melissa Ober is “Science Girl” of Science Girl’s Lab and she wants you to join her in her Lab at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum to discover the Treasures of a Trebuchet! Melissa built a 7-foot trebuchet that can launch objects tens of feet through the air. Can we make these objects go higher? Faster? Farther? Join us in discovering these treasures of engineering that has been around for centuries! Finish this exploration by making your very own catapult with Science Girl to take home! In everything that Science Girl’s Lab does, we make sure that we learn to “Go Be Awesome!”
