Space Day

Are your students ready for an out-of-this-world experience? Space Day will encourage your students to explore the science behind the upcoming eclipse and what is beyond Earth. There will be 8-10 activity stations spread throughout all three levels of the museum to discover Indiana’s connections to space through hands-on experiences. Students will also test their engineering skills while building a lunar lander.

There is limited space so register early! Only Space Day-related field trips offered during this time. No self-guided field trips available. Recommended for K through grade 6.

Price: $6/student, $2/chaperone, free for teachers


CANCELLATION POLICY: School programs cancelled less than 72 hours before the day of the scheduled program will incur a $50 cancellation fee per program.
