TRAIN LIKE AN ASTRONAUT AT THE SPACE SCIENCE SPECTACULAR IN DODGE CITY!
The Cosmosphere will offer the chance to win a ride on an authentic Multi-Axis Trainer (MAT) as part of dozens of activities it’s bringing from Hutchinson to Dodge City in June for the Space Science Spectacular.
On June 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and June 3 from 12:00 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Dodge City Civic Center, Cosmosphere Science Educators will demonstrate the operation of underwater robotic vehicles; the use of a geocache; an explosive history of rocketry; how to cope with the challenges of living in space and even a tasty way to remember the phases of the moon while eating Oreo cookies!
Many more Cosmosphere activities will be offered including an interactive astronomy presentation and a solar system bracelet to take home. This free event is open to the public and will offer visitors the opportunity to see and experience a number of space science activities, demonstrations and displays.
Visitors to the event will also be able to see displays from the Cosmosphere’s museum collection—including a historic mission control console from Johnson Space Center and several examples of astronaut food.
On Saturday, a free pizza lunch (while supplies last) will also be offered.
Offered through the Dodge City Schools and sponsored by The Victory Electric Cooperative Assoc., Inc., United Wireless and Hutton Construction.
