Events for Youth & Families: BLAST OFF! Astronaut Training
It is an interactive storytelling program created and performed by Mélissa Smith! Trainees will be up on their feet as they go through a mock astronaut training session — complete with physical exercises, a drawing challenge, history lessons highlighting achievements by women in space, and an interactive reading of Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed. The young recruits will learn the astronaut creed, "If I can dream it, if I can believe in it, and if I can work hard for it, anything is possible!" The program culminates in an intergalactic dance party!
