Great Space Adventures Day

Great Space Adventures Day has the goal of bringing the excitement of science and math in general and Space research in particular to life for children in a family-focused event. Hands-on activities include rocketry and balsa wood gliders which generate much excitement from our young participants as the count down nears blast off! Our NASA astronaut will present his very own space adventures to capture the fascination of both parents and children alike. Informational booths, such as Michigan Space and Science Center, University of Michigan Student Space Activities, and NASA Glenn Research Center (to name just a few) will reach many of our visitors.

This event is held roughly once a year.
