Home School Day

Learning Starts at Home

Home studies take one giant leap during a special Home-School Day with a space twist called Red Dust Leading to Endless Possibilities 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16. The event is part of a year-long schedule of exhibits and educational activities called “The Next Giant Leap” that explore what NASA is doing now and in the future.

Are your home-schooled students ready for the Next Giant Leap? This exclusive educational opportunity offers home-school families not just one, but multiple activities that use national science education standards. Unique because it uses space science as a theme, it features immersive, hands-on experiences for all grade levels. Workshops offer parents an opportunity to improve their teaching skills and include a Spanish-speaking trainer.

Participants will marvel as they create their own yummy edible comet – Comet Ice Cream. They will be inspired by the STEM-based planetarium presentation “From Blue to Red.” Other activities include Hula Hooping on Mars and Martian Dodge Ball – neither are easy when played at 38 percent gravity of Earth. Also Robotics on Mars including a workshop, rover races and more. Activities end at 4 p.m. and parents will have an extra hour to explore the center.
