Exploring the Solar System: Stomp Rockets
May 24 @ 10:30 am – 11:00 am
Exploring the Solar System: Stomp Rockets @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Have a blast with rockets at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Friday, May 24 at 10:30, 1:30 and 3:30. Learn about how some rockets carry science tools into space, and how a special kind of rocket called “sounding rockets” can be used for quick, low-flying scientific missions into space. Then build and launch your own air rockets to help imagine the challenges and triumphs of engineering spacecraft and launching them into the space above our planet! Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This program is a special preview of Discovery Space, an exhibit full of out-of-this-world fun, opening June 14!

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.

Exploring the Universe: Filtered Light
May 25 @ 10:30 am – 11:00 am
Exploring the Universe: Filtered Light @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Join us for this illuminating program at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Saturday, May 25 at 10:30 and 1:30. Discover how colored filters can help reveal more about an image, then make and study colorful images of your own. Learn how scientists can use telescopes and other tools to capture and filter different energies of light to study the universe. Most objects in the universe are so distant from us that we can only study them through light. Filters allow us to block some energy levels of light and isolate others; each energy of light can offer new information about the object of study. Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This program is a special preview of Discovery Space, an exhibit full of out-of-this-world fun, opening June 14!

Exploring Earth: Temperature Mapping
May 28 @ 1:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Exploring Earth: Temperature Mapping @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Explore the magic of temperature at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Tuesday, May 28 at 1:30. This activity models the way Landsat satellites use a thermal infrared sensor to measure land surface temperatures. Infrared technology, like the infrared thermometer in this activity, uses the infrared light emitted by an object to measure its temperature remotely (without having to touch it!) By taking a series of measurements over an area, a scientist can create a visual representation of the surface temperatures (like a weather map for surface temperatures rather than air temperatures.) Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This program is a special preview of Discovery Space, an exhibit full of out-of-this-world fun, opening June 14!

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members.

Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network.

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members.
