The Jan. 13 program is titled “Ready for Blastoff” and will focus on astronauts, how they get ready to go into space and attendees will get to make their own space suit. The Feb. 10 program is titled “Junior Rocket Scientist” and attendees will get the chance to design their own rockets. The March 9 program is “Creepy Crawly” and will focus on insects, their behaviors and body parts. The May 11 program is called “Incoming Landing” and will be about the construction of parachute landers and Mars rovers.
All programs will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. on their respective day. Snacks will be provided and attendees will receive a RiverView Cafe food voucher. Free premium memberships will be given to Northside residents with early learners, while supplies last.
