Johnson City: Homeschool Day at the Science Mill- Space Science

March 5, 2021 - 10:00am to 2:00pm

The Science Mill becomes Mission Control as we explore Careers in Space Science on March 5 and March 24! Drive a Mars rover, design a launcher to carry cargo into space and hold a digital 3D solar system in your hand at the activity stations. In our video talks, hear about the future of space exploration (including space vacations!) from a former NASA astronaut and see how “space fossils” help an astrophysicist uncover the origins of our galaxy.

All aspiring astronauts are welcome to join Homeschool Day, including those with asynchronous schedules or in learning pods.
