OKLAHOMA CITY -- Campers at the Science Museum Oklahoma are letting their imaginations soar.

They are learning about the science behind space exploration. The class is building rockets in celebration of NASA's final shuttle launch.

Some of the children say they have never seen a launch live on television.

Weather permitting, space shuttle Atlantis will take off on Friday.

The kids find it hard to believe, the shuttle program is coming to an end. Jaylen Wooten was looking forward to a space career.

"I think it would be cool to be an astronaut because I would get to go to Mars and other planets," said Wooten.
