Did you know that before man walked on the moon NASA sent a monkey up into space? If you are curious about outer space or what it’s like to be an astronaut, come to the Dream Big–READ Library Space Camp! Camp will begin at 3:30 p.m. on June 13 at the Smithville Library and at 10:00 a.m. on June 14 at the Redbone Library.
Enjoy crafts like making a paper bag space helmet and creating your own planet/spacecraft from a re-purposed CD. You can also learn about what astronauts wear, eat and do in space. Finally, earn your space wings by suiting up for a simulated space walk complete with rock samples and communication with Mission Control!
