Build An Alien at What If...
Come see the Space Foundation at the What If... Festival of Innovation & Imagination, to be held Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., at the Plaza of the Rockies, in downtown Colorado Springs, Colo.
What If... will fill more than six square blocks of downtown Colorado Springs with activities demonstrating and encouraging innovation, imagination and creativity for all ages.
The Space Foundation activity for families will teach children about the natural world with an exercise in which they "build" aliens and then have to consider the environmental forces that shaped their creatures.
