The kids are home from school this week, you now officially have no time to breathe and I bet you’re just as excited as they are! Don’t worry, we got you covered. So covered, you might not even hear the “BORED” word ONCE this break week!
The Buffalo Museum of Science (bless their thoughtful souls!) is hosting a fun-filled week of Earth & Space exploration. The Explore Science: Earth & Space event will take place every day this week, April 10th – April 15th from 11:00 am – 2:30 pm as part of a nationwide celebration of educational programs designed to engage audiences in the awe-inspiring fields of Earth and space science. That’s right, we said every day.
This exciting multi-day event (which happens to be placed not-so-coincidentally during break week) provides an opportunity to connect with current NASA science research and explore earth and space phenomena. How awesome is that?
The event offers exciting science, take-home materials, and engaging discussion about science and society. Participants will get the chance to make clouds (cool!), imagine what extraterrestrial life might be like (ummmmm, yes), investigate gravity, explore icy worlds, and more.
The fun activities mentioned above introduce guests (of all ages, let’s be honest) to the ongoing research happening at NASA in the fields of heliophysics, Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics, and allow them to get hands-on with Earth and space science concepts. The Explore Science: Earth & Space project is led by the Science Museum of Minnesota, in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkits are developed and distributed nationwide by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net).
Don’t you wish you were a kid again? Because we do.
