This year's theme is "Celebrate 60 Years of Earth Observations With NASA." SSI's National Center for Interactive Learning has assembled a collection of resources that include vetted STEM activities, printable materials (PDF format), promotional photos and related website links that you can utilize for your 2018 Earth Day programming.
In the summer of 2018, NASA will launch the Parker Solar Probe. This small, car-sized spacecraft will travel into the Sun's atmosphere, within four million miles of our star's surface. Join Space Science Institute's Brooks Mitchell and Dr. Paul Dusenbery to learn all about NASA's first mission to "touch" the Sun and ways that your library can be involved.
