Explore! To the Moon, Mars and Beyond!
Explore! To the Moon, Mars and Beyond is a 10 week program designed to engage students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades in space and planetary science in the after school informal learning environment. The program is presented at Meigs North and Meigs South Elementary Schools each week by our library staff and volunteers.
Through hands on activities and supporting resources such as videos, recommended books and web sites, participants will be immersed in the wonders of rockets, space colonies, our solar system, staying healthy in space and more!
Local partnerships with planetariums, museums, scientists, and Solar System Ambassadors (NASA trained volunteers) provide exciting opportunities for children to learn from experts in the field of space science. The program is funded by a grant from VEC Customer Shares and is free to all participants.
This site will updated weekly with news from our "Explore! To the Moon, Mars and Beyond" after school program.
