NISE Exploreum Science: Earth & Space Day
April 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
It’s that time of year again! Come join the Exploreum for an exciting day of Earth and Space Science! This Earth Day we will be bringing out brand new experiments from the NISE Network to truly have some out of this world fun!
The Explore Science: Earth & Space event at the Gulf Coast Exploreum 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 provides an opportunity to connect with current NASA science research and explore Earth and space phenomena.
The Explore Science: Earth & Space 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!
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 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).
