On Saturday we went to the Buffalo Museum of Science to talk to visiting children about space! We raced balloon “rockets”, make paper airplanes, read space books, and made craters in a bin of flour.
The UB SEDS Educational Outreach group works to educate and inspire local youth to pursue academic excellence, typically by volunteering weekend mornings at the Buffalo Museum of Science. It is our goal to spark an interest in space exploration and development, and get young students as excited as we are about space!
Please contact project lead Rachel Malken at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
This weekend we are going to the Buffalo Museum of Science. The
plan is to do rocket balloons, talk about the moon (we have a moon
globe), and have a short video for them to watch. I was toying with
the idea of bringing the impact crater flour thing where they throw
golf balls into flour to see the craters they make, but it makes a
mess and we won’t have our normal spot due to body worlds. If you
would like to come please respond to this email.
Saturday we’ll be leaving around 11 and coming back around 3. If
anybody wants to carpool/needs a ride please let me know.
