Put on your space suits and get ready to blast off into outer space! Each week students explore a different aspect of space while gaining exposure to science, literacy and art. Every class begins with a story related to the day’s lesson, a planetarium “lab,” and a hands-on art project. Students will learn about our Solar System. You’ll get messy, so wear old clothes.
