Up in the Sky

This episode is all about engaging families in Earth & Space Science! Meet up with the curator of the Smithsonian's national touring exhibit Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission for a look at the past, present, and future of space exploration. We'll also show families how to track what's up in the sky using a range of scientific tools, from sophisticated telescopes to celestial bodies that can be seen with the naked eye! The episode concludes with a salute to the Maker Movement as we present hands-on projects to make a star clock, and a pin-hole camera for safely viewing a solar eclipse.
