So you wanna be a rocket scientist?

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Well, now might be your chance. Or, at least you can maybe meet a few people who actually are rocket scientists. How? Glad you asked. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, The Jet Propulsion Laboratory will open its doors to the public for an event that will feature exhibits, displays, demonstrations, and presentations about the Laboratory's ongoing research, space exploration, and spacecraft communication. And, of course, rockets.

There will also be hands-on activities for the little kids too. And for the big kids as well. Food and beverages will be available. Admission and parking are free but they don't want you to bring bags, backpacks, or ice chests. Plus, you, your vehicle and your personal space are subject to inspection. So, head on over and learn something. It won't hurt you. We promise.
