Join us on April 9, 2016, 1:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M. for an afternoon of space themed activities, fun, and the opportunity to see what rocket science is all about! 

Elementary and middle school students are invited to Griffith Observatory to learn about space, to meet Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti in the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon Theater and to talk to young rocket engineers from Virgin Galactic, The SpaceShipCompany and other area space and tech companies. Kids will also be able to build their very own "Spudnik" potato satellite and straw rocket.

In preparation for the big day we encourage all kids to watch the "Yuri's Night" episode of Disney's "Miles From Tomorrowland" for kids of all ages to share in the excitement of a holiday that the whole universe can come together to celebrate. Disney has made the Yuri's Night episode free to watch for the whole month of April in celebration of Yuri's Night!

Come join us! All events are free and open to the public.
