The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History presents out-of-this-world group fun in the Earth & Space Lab NEW this April with science educators
Tom Gravius & Peg LeGendre Monday, April 19 – Friday, April 23, 2021.
Monday & Wednesday April 19 & 21; 11:30am & 1pm
Interstellar Explorations: Simulate your own exploding star with Nebula Spin Art. Then, see how nature recycles this interstellar dust as you build gas giant planets or stars. To explore the moon and the rest of our solar system, including Mars, we’ll need rockets and rovers. You’ll design, build, and test just like a NASA scientist. Finally, discover how a meter of paper tape can help you understand scale by making your own Pocket Solar System.
Tuesday, Thursday & Friday April 20, 22, & 23; 11:30am & 1pm
Moon Adventure: Explore craters by making your own. Learn why would we want to land near a Moon crater. Then take on the Moon Adventure Game. Can your crew solve a series of challenges based on real NASA science to save your Moonbase?
