Join the Wyoming State Museum on Saturday, December 3, for a Family Day dedicated to outer space! From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. families are invited to enjoy games, activities, crafts, and learning opportunities for all ages.
With partners from University of Wyoming Physics and Astronomy, as well as the NASA Space Grant Consortium, participants will learn all about the mysteries of the universe. Peer into a telescope to see what the sun looks like up close, make your own straw rocket, see real meteorites, learn about moon phases, and discover how UW scientists are using the James Webb Space Telescope to study other galaxies.
Crafts and activities include pinwheels and constellation shadow boxes, a Moon Rock Relay Race, and a flashlight hide and seek game. Barrett Creek Coffee, a new local Coffee trailer, will be at the museum selling hot beverages and snacks that the whole family will love.
Family Days are generously sponsored by SCHEELS in Johnstown, CO. Thanks to their support, these events are always free and open to everyone! Family Day fans can follow the museum’s Facebook and Instagram accounts to stay in the know about upcoming events: @wyomingstatemuseum.
