Program Description

Event Description

In celebration of the launch of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, you will get a chance to experience the teamwork, research, and planning it takes to make a successful NASA mission to space. Players will represent a team of scientists and engineers sending a spacecraft on a mission to space in this tabletop board game. This game is designed for players ages 4 and up. Come and pick up your very own Mission to Space Board Game take-home kit at the Ralph Ellison Library.
