Come celebrate Earth Day with the Children’s Museum of Southeastern Connecticut from 11am-2pm. This will be our first event using the new Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit by The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net)!
Get hands-on with science and learn about Earth and space. Participants will make clouds, imagine what extraterrestrial life might be like, investigate gravity, explore icy worlds, 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.
Children will also learn to reduce, reuse, recycle with interactive demonstrations using our Watershed Enviroscape® model and by creating masterpieces from recycled materials.
• Free with museum admission
The Children’s Museum of Southeastern Connecticut was among 250 museums and institutions throughout the country awarded the 2017 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit by NISE Net. In collaboration with NASA, the NISE Network has assembled a new set of engaging, hands-on Earth and space science experiences with connections to science, technology, and society.
