NASA @ My Library Programs

This month of March, Siouxland Libraries will offer two traveling NASA @ My Library STEM programs for youngsters in Grades K through 5.

Ultraviolet Light and the Sun will be at the Oak View Branch, 3700 East Third Street, on Thursday, March 8, 2018, from 3:15 to 4 p.m. Participants will explore the ultraviolet light produced by the sun using spectroscopes and black lights.

Explore the Moon and Mars will be at the Garretson Branch, 649 Main Street, on Thursday, March 22, 2018, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Activities will focus on the surfaces of the moon and Mars and how their craters are formed. Those who attend can build a space colony, take green screen pictures of themselves on the moon, and take part in a crater-making experiment.

The NASA @ My Library project is led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute. Partners include the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, Pacific Science Center, Cornerstones of Science, and Education Development Center. NASA @ My Library is made possible through the support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate as part of its STEM Activation program.
