Summer camp canceled? Looking for kid-friendly activities? We’re here to help you entertain your kids this summer! Every Friday this summer at 1pm, we will read stories about innovators, engineers, space, and all things tech. Listen to some great stories, do an activity, and spend time exploring the museum before or after storytime. Free with admission. Become a museum member and attend the entire summer reading series for free and access to the museum for a full year. Ideal for kids aged 5 to 10 years old.
Come listen to the incredible real-life account of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden.
It’s the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA, known as “colored computers,” and how they overcame gender and racial barriers to succeed in a highly challenging STEM-based career.
Activities ideal for children aged 6 to 10 will follow the reading and families are invited to explore the museum and its Apollo 11 exhibit featuring memorabilia and an almost life-sized lunar lander replica.
Free admission for one child with every paid adult admission.
