Program Description

Event Description

The James Webb Space Telescope is all about is all about beginnings, like the beginnings of galaxies. This telescope will allow scientists to look back in time to when stars and galaxies were beginning to form. In this activity kit inspired by cosmic science and art, your child will learn to make a tiny galaxy right in their own hands.
