Ways to Engage

Choose at least one to do with your family

or come up with your own!

Compare and Contrast

Choose 1 machine that flies on Earth and 1 machine that flies out of Earth’s orbit and into space. 

How are these machines the same?How are these machines different?

Think about the machine’s shape, size, parts, and materials. 

Scientific Drawing

 Bring paper and coloring tools with you to the museum. 

Visit the EXPLORING THE PLANETS gallery. Closely observe, draw, and color the planets. Work to capture their size and colors. What planet do you think humans will visit first?  

Tell a Story


Use the artifacts you see to tell the story of either humans in flight or our journey to landing on the moon. 



Visit the ONE WORLD CONNECTED exhibit. 

What are all the tools that have been invented that allow us to connect across the planet AND give us a new perspective of our planet Earth?
