Michigan Humanities Touring Artist & Storyteller, Jenifer Strauss, will be merging years as a science teacher and storyteller in this interactive, wacky program filled with intergalactic stories, songs and DIY ideas for young space explorers.

Participants will be making and launching their own straw rockets and making moon that they can take home!
