The Las Cruces Museum of Nature & Science hosts, “Earth and Space Science Day” on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 10am-1pm.
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, learn how to pack a telescope, 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). Throughout spring and summer of 2018, events are taking place at over 250 museums and institutions throughout the country.
Admission to the Museum of Nature and Science is free. The museum is located at 411 North Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm. and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm.
