September 11 to December 21, 2017

We're exploring all things space. Starting with Earth, we'll learn 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, such as 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.
