Escaping Earth’s gravitational pull is just the first step in “Destination Space,” a unique, space-aged exhibit that shows kids what it takes to be an astronaut.
Kids can blast off at Science Museum Oklahoma, 2100 N.E. 52nd, by taking part in a mission to have fun while learning about space and the science that propels astronauts to the moon. Learn about rocket launches, space suits and the tools of space exploration, and find out what it’s like living and working in space.
Rocket boys and girls can join Otto the robot for hands-on stations and activities that reveal the wonders of the universe.
Phase one of “Destination Space” explores the challenge of escaping Earth’s atmosphere and the gravity behind overcoming Isaac Newton’s laws of physics, instrumental for the success of space missions. Newton knows that for every action there is always an opposite and equal reaction. Enter “Destination Space,” and the reaction will be an out-of-this-world adventure that will inspire kids to go above and beyond.
The exhibit is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Adult admission is $9.95, seniors and children are $8.75. For more information, call 602-6664.
