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).
