Swedes in Space: Become an Astronaut with American Swedish Historical Museum!

Children, Tweens Closed 5/1/2019 9/1/2019

During this program families will explore the life of astronauts and their intensive training to prepare for space. We will discuss the careers of Swedish-American NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin (the second human to set foot on the moon together with Neil Armstrong in 1969) and Christer Fuglesang, who became the first Swedish astronaut in space in 2006. Participants will experience astronaut training, then blast-off into space to complete a mission to the moon! This program will help children practice STEM and team-building skills through hands-on activities. We will end with making our own space shuttles to take home! Ages 5-12.
