Space Science Expert Badge Workshop - Sorry Event is Full

Nov 17, 2019
3:00 PM - 6:00 PM CST

For most of human history, the planets and stars have only been tiny points of light, floating in a dark sky many millions–or even trillions–of miles away. People begun by organizing the sky into constellations, cataloging the stars by brightness, and then the invention of the telescope harnessed the power of light and expanded our view! Now, it's your turn to explore light and discover what it teaches us about the Universe!

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Denise Hall from NASA, Senior Strategic Communication Specialist/Communications Lead for the Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) Division


  • Uncover the stuff you're made of
  • Explore the brilliance of the stars
  • Discover Telescopes as light collectors

  • Share your knowledge


When I've earned this badge, I will understand more about the universe–my place in it and how light is used to make discoveries about it.
