I am very excited to invite everyone to a fantastic event: RocketFest, a field day at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama!

Rocketfest is a celebration of Space Camp and what it does to inspire kids to explore space. It's open to families and kids of all ages, and it'll be on Monday, September 3rd, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Space Camp itself. All proceeds raised go to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation. I'll be giving a short talk there about space exploration, and a few geeky friends will be there too: George Hrab, Molly Lewis, Ken Plume, Joseph Scrimshaw, and Marian Call! Marian organized this whole thing because she is constructed of awesome. Also, ThinkGeek is donating prizes for it, too. Marian has details on her blog, and you can read more about it on the Space Camp page, or the Facebook events page Marian set up. The event will be streamed live on the web from the Space Camp page. I'll try to tweet it and all that (but bear in mind we're leaving straight from Dragon*Con to Hunstville, so my ability to internet may be limited - so follow Marian, Molly, and George on Twitter just to be sure). We also have this cool retro poster:

I hope to see lots of BABloggees there, or on the live stream. You'll love this, I promise.
