The American Swedish Historical Museum's Swedes in Space

Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - 1:00pm

During this program, children will explore the life of astronauts and their intensive training  to  prepare  for  space. 

We  will  discuss  the  careers  of  Swedish-American  NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin (the second human to set foot on the moon together with Neil Armstrong in 1969) and Christer Fuglesang, who became the first Swedish astronaut in space in 2006. Participants will experience astronaut training, then blast-off  into  space  to  complete  a  mission  to  the  moon! 

This  program  will  help  children practice STEM and team-building skills through hands-on activities. We will end our program with making our own space shuttles to take home.

Registration is required. Please call us at 856-767-7727.
