Hidden Figures Story Time with Rocket Craft
Celebrate Black History Month
Join us for a story time featuring the new picture book for ages 4 to 8 telling the story of four African American women who made history helping get Americans into space. This inspiring true story was made into a bestselling book for adults and an award-winning movie and uncovered a fascinating piece of history that had been previously untold due to its classified nature.
We'll follow up the book reading with a fun craft that'salso a great STEM activity.
We'll make straw rockets. Launch them with your breath and watch them fly! Take them home and keep experimenting: how does the angle affect the distance it flies?
This book and activity are best for ages 4 to 8 years old, though younger siblings are welcome to come along.
