Race to Space
During the Cold War, The Soviets and Americans began a race to see who would be the first to put a man in space. Starting in 1957 and ending with an exciting conclusion on July 20, 1969, the “Race to Space” dramatically changed the world. This program will take a walk on the moon with the people who were major characters of the Space Race and help participants learn a better understanding of how that time period still helps us have a better today. If you like making space landers, exploring the galaxy, and would like to blast off to the moon, make sure to join us!
