Saturday night, we had the opportunity to go on a great field trip! NASA/Goddard Space research center had an open house, and did we have fun!! There were special speakers (astronauts!), lots of hands-on kids' activities, telescopes set up outside for nighttime viewing, cake for everyone, and so much more! If you're looking for a free, educational place to go with the kids, their Visitor's Center would be fun place to visit!!
(this activity shows how craters are formed, and what scientists can learn from the way the dirt moves when impacted by a meteor -- pretty cool!)
