Activities for Use in Libraries

Created by Keliann LaConte Last updated 5/8/2014

The Lunar and Planetary Institute's Explore program is designed to engage children in Earth and space science in libraries and other out-of-classroom environments. Library staff across the country are using the activities to bring new audiences into the library. Since its inception 15 years ago, the Explore program has grown to support a community of more than nearly 900 individuals in 35 states — all trained to bring Earth and space science to their children's and youth programs. The program began through a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, and NASA continues to nurture the breadth and depth of Explore materials, resources, and trainings.
