Saturday, visit the museum and build your own space station with kids from across the world. The Earth's national and regional space agencies built the International Space Station one module at a time. You will employ that same method as we launch our own modules throughout the day. Each module will be made of cardboard and participants can use their imagination to determine what purpose each unit will serve. Weather permitting.
Sunday, use shoe boxes or similarly sized containers to build a smaller scale space station inside the Museum. Decorate each module to indicate if it is intended for living quarters, scientific research, or station operations. Admission required for smaller-scale space station.
Also, the larger-scale space station assembled on Saturday will be available to take on its first astronaut crews. Weather permitting.
Both days, we'll examine how living in space is possible, with demonstrations of growing food, water filtration, and zero-G fitness.
The museum will be closed temporarily for a special event. There will be no admittance between 11 am and 1:30 pm.
Thank you for understanding.

The Easter Bunny will be on hand to meet children and take photos.
This year's event will feature four hunting zones for children 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-10. Special observation areas will provide parents and other adults with clear views of the hunt areas, which will be partially or fully enclosed.
All hunts will feature staggered starts and will be preceded by a special rocket launch!
Join the museum educator in the front hall to discuss rocketry and propulsion. Get a chance to create a straw rocket. Witness rocket launching* at 11:00; 12:00; 1:00; 2:00, and 3:00.
The museum will also feature activities including guided tours with museum admission, air propulsion, and a rocket building workshop.
Rocket Building workshop allows you to build an easy-to-assemble style rocket to take home. Also, you will learn about rocketry and propulsion. The workshop is from 2:00-3:00 or 3:30-4:30 and we only have 10 spots available in each. Please contact us to sign up today at firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop cost is $20.00 per participant.
