TOMORROW, (Thursday) @5:30 we will be showing THE FAULT IN OUR STARS!

Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them - and us - on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.(C) Fox

Jim Lenz Rocket Making Workshop.

We had an excellent Rocket-Making workshop at the Manitowoc Public Library with Jim Lenz earlier this monty!  After a brief discussion about physics Jim Lenz carefully instructed us about how to make paper rockets. Then we journeyed to the grounds outside of the library to blast them off with Jim's air compressor rocket launcher!

The Herald Times Reporter created a wonderful video about our experience. Check it out!

The rockets easily flew 80-100 yards!
