There are many ways families can learn together!
- Use the information and resources found in the Space Science Family Guide (pdf) to explore our universe from home.
- Help your child get the most from the Explore Space exhibit by talking about these space words (pdf) that might be new to them.
The exhibit and the related Library programs make learning about space science and astronomy fun! From the recent discovery of seven Earth-size planets, to creating your own Mars colony, children and adults can examine science fiction versus fact, and learn about our planet's place in space. Working with partners at Missouri State University and the Discovery Center of Springfield, we'll also help you prepare for and experience the most awesome natural event of a lifetime, the August 21 solar eclipse.
