Out of This World
May 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Out of This World at Great Explorations Children’s Museum is part of a nationwide celebration of educational programs designed to engage audiences in the awe-inspiring fields of Earth and space science. This exciting event is an opportunity to connect with NASA science research and explore Earth and space phenomena.
Participants will have a chance to explore the ways our universe is expanding, build their own electroscope to detect static electricity, perform experiments with erosion, and much more! These fun activities introduce guests to the ongoing research happening at NASA in the fields of heliophysics, Earth Science, planetary science, and astrophysics, and allow hands-on interactions with Earth and space science concepts.
This project is led by Arizona State University, in collaboration with NASA. Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkits are developed and distributed nationwide by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net). Throughout spring and summer 2019, events are taking place at 350 museums and institutions throughout the country.
