The Children's Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton launched its $2 million capital campaign during Rocket Day at the museum on Saturday.
Stephen Long, the museum director, dressed in a NASA Flight Suit for the occasion, and children and their families built stomp rockets, which were then launched. Guests received shirts with the slogan, “I Helped Launch CMEE Into the Future,” which they decorated with rocket and space-themed stamps.
The campaign will help fund the addition of several new exhibits, including including an energy exhibit, a redesigned boat exhibit, and an outdoor mini golf course.
Amy Tarr, the president of CMEE’s Board of Trustees, made the presentation in the amphitheater, just before a soda bottle rocket traveled 100 feet into the air.
