This is an amazing time to be an astronomer!
From movies like Hidden Figures highlighting the women behind NASA missions, to Juno’s encounter of Jupiter and Cassini’s last moments with Saturn, we will cover all the latest events in astronomy. Come to the Museum to learn about the history of NASA scientists and what we have learned from these missions during their travels. We will continue to develop a deeper understanding about optics, light, and gravity in the universe.

A few tips:
- Please send your child with a healthy lunch and reusable water bottle.
- For rocket launching on April 19th, we would like to use a local private field about 3 miles from the Museum. We will issue permission slips for staff to transport students, and directions to the field if you would like to transport your child and watch the launching.
