Meals on Mars: Space Food and More – 3rd thru 5th Grade (Lucy Hammer Room)

Thursday, June 27

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Ever wonder what space food looks, smells and tastes like? Well, in this program we will not only make our very own but also learn a little about the menu process and how nutritionists select items that can “make it in space.” Participants will be asked to create their own month long space menu based on taste, nutritional value and shelf life. So let’s start cooking for the atmosphere!

Registration for this program is required. To do so, please call 203. 488. 1441. ext. 321 or click here.
