Students in 6th-8th grade, join us for a fun DIY (Do It Yourself) workshop on making galaxy t-shirts! You'll learn how to make your own galaxy t-shirt, which you can take home at the end of the workshop. We'll also talk about our “guiding stars” (ie. role models) and explore what makes us shine as leaders and friends.
In this workshop, students in 3rd-5th grade will make a 3D mosaic using recycled paper and computer parts! All the parts have been chosen with children in mind and are made from plastic, rubber and metal. Through observation, imagination, and experimentation, we will learn about patterns, contrasting shapes and colors, and layering in order to make an eye-popping creation!
In July 2018, NASA will launch a satellite 60 years in the making. The hottest mission under the Sun will visit - the Sun! It is an extreme mission - the fastest human-made object that will travel closest to the Sun at the hottest operating temperatures in history. Learn what went into building this satellite with Dr. Kelly Korreck, who will describe the strange Sun behavior that this mission aims to explain, and Dr. Tony Case, who will discuss the bravest instrument on board that peeks around the spacecraft's protective sun shade: the Solar Probe Cup. Rooftop observing will follow...
Join us for a reception to celebrate the latest Crossings Gallery exhibition, Space for the Unknown.
