Astronomy Day at Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium

Astronomy Day

The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum will celebrate Astronomy Day where educators will perform free earth science and astronomy demonstrations for adults and children. Toolkits for the demonstrations are developed and distributed nationwide by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net). The Explore Science: Earth & Space event will include exciting science, take-home materials, and engaging discussion about science and society. Participants will make clouds, create nebula spin art, investigate Moonquakes, explore craters, and much more! These fun activities introduce guests to the ongoing research happening at NASA in the fields of Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics, and allow them to get hands-on with Earth and space science concepts. The Explore Science: Earth & Space project is led by the Science Museum of Minnesota, in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
