Join the History Adventures at Los Alamos History Museum! For our last session on July 31st, Mel Strong from the Bradbury Science Museum will be sharing a program about the history of how we’ve learned about the moon.
For centuries scientists were puzzled by the dark spots on the moon. Were they lakes? Craters? Volcanoes? Something else? We will examine photos of the moon and talk about the history of the science surrounding the moon. What did scientists think before we visited the moon? What did they think after? What did the rock samples from the moon tell scientists about the events that happened in the moon’s past? We’ll look at some of the evidence ourselves and discuss how the scientists thought about the moon over the years.
For children going into 1st–3rd grade, we will meet on the lawn of Fuller Lodge from 9:30–10:30 (caregivers, please stay with your children). For children going into 4th–6th grade, we will meet at the Youth Activity Center(475 20th Street, Suite F) from 10:45–11:45.
The Los Alamos History Museum presents History Adventures every Tuesday morning in June and July for hands-on history activities that will have kids moving, making, thinking, sharing, and learning. The program is free, and no registration is required.
