Written by: developer

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 1, 2016) – The Space Foundation is a destination for fun and interactive learning for the entire family. This March, guests are invited to experience space art, story time and Martian margaritas.

This Saturday, March 5, the monthly Star Days event, sponsored in part by Raytheon and Uwingu, will be themed “The Art of Space.” The day will be filled with special Science On a Sphere® presentations, crafts such as Marbled Planets, Galaxy in a Bottle and Space Chalk Art throughout the day. Activities will be enjoyed by the young and not-as-young alike.

The following Tuesday, March 8, we invite families with preschoolers to join us for a Space Story Party as we read Gianna Marino’s Meet Me at the Moon. Parents and their little ones will enjoy a story, an activity involving Oreo cookies and coloring. Space Story Time is designed to spark an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in young learners.

Regular Discovery Center admission applies for Star Days and Space Story Party events.

Later in the week, it’s time for the adults to have some fun. The new 21+ Space Mixer program will feature an evening of Martian Margaritas! We will test drive mini rovers in the Mars Robotics Laboratory and have special hands-on challenges and margaritas of course. Light bites are also included in the $20 admission.

Keep up to date with all the great events at the Space Foundation Discover Center on our website calendar:
