Join us for the Explore Science: Earth & Space event, celebrating the first human to launch into space, Yuri Gagarin, who flew the Vostok 1 spaceship on April 12, 1961.
The Explore Science event is part of a nationwide celebration of educational programs designed to engage audiences in the awe-inspiring fields of Earth and space science. The event will include exciting science, take-home materials, and engaging discussion about science and society. Participants will have a chance to launch stomp rockets, explore how water moves in a watershed, make and investigate craters, and much more! Included with paid general admission.
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).
