​BOOMbox Space

Stop by the BOOMbox now until December 21 where we will be exploring all things space. Starting with Earth as our reference point, we'll learn all about the planets of our solar system—their size, makeup, moons, and weather—and what it takes to support life. Micro workshops will focus on tools of exploration like telescopes and robots, and the scientists who invented them. Your journey through and beyond the Milky Way galaxy will be full of hands on learning, experimentation, and exploration with a variety of tools, supplies, and resources.
