With activities generously provided by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net), kids will explore sometimes difficult scientific concepts in fun & accessible ways.  From building stomp rockets to study our upper atmosphere, to creating impact craters on the moon, to planning out the route of a blindfolded “Mars Rover” through obstacles, every activity either imitates a natural process, or models the tools used by NASA scientists to explore & understand the cosmos.

In addition, several Galileoscopes will be on hand, to help curious astronomers understand the construction behind a simple refractor telescope just like the one invented by Galileo himself four hundred years ago.

Over a dozen activities and games will remain set up throughout the day, with museum educators on hand to guide visitors and answer questions.  Visit any time during Earth & Space Days, and nourish your child’s fascination with our wonderful universe, and our unique place in it!
