Swedes in Space
Join the American Swedish Historical Museum for the 2019 Collaborative Summer Reading Program themed "A Universe of Stories" to discover the wonders of space and learn what is takes to become an astronaut!
During this program families will explore the life of astronauts and their intensive training to prepare for space. We will discuss the careers of Swedish-American NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin (the second human to set foot on the moon together with Neil Armstrong in 1969) and Christer Fuglesang, who became the first Swedish astronaut in space in 2006. Participants will experience astronaut training, then blast-off into space to complete a mission to the moon! This program will help children practice STEM and team-building skills through hands-on activities. We will end our program with making our own space shuttles to take home.
Appropriate for children in grades 1-6. Registration required.
