This summer, the Tully Free Library is offering a four-week space program for students between 6th and 12th grade. In the Tully Space Program, students will use the simulation game Kerbal Space Program to design physics-realistic rockets and design missions to orbit the planet, visit a moon, and send robotic rovers to distant planets and more! The program will take advantage of new computers, equipment and space available at the library.
The program will involve a series of 1-2 hour classes, held once a week on Monday afternoons from July 7th to July 28th. Class times will be decided depending on how many students register for participation. A girls-only class will be held if enough girls register for the program.
In addition to working with Kerbal, students will conduct other experiments with simulations, robot kits, and have access to additional learning materials relating to space exploration. The last week of the program will feature a field trip, in which participating students will get the chance to meet real-life NASA scientists.
Please register today if you or your teen is interested in participating in the Tully Space Program.
Paper registration forms are available at the library circulation desk.
