Meet Astronaut Abby at the Minnesota Science Museum Earth Day 2013

Earth Day 2013

On Saturday, April 20, I will be at the Science Museum of Minnesota for Earth Day! Just like I did last year, I’ll be working with Liz Heineke of Kitchen Pantry Scientist to run a table of Kitchen Pantry Science demonstrations for kids as part of as the Earth Day/NASA Climate Day Celebration. We’ll be doing exciting hands-on STEM education demonstrations – it’s going to be a blast!

From 1 to 4 p.m., the museum’s 2013 Earth Day event will feature hands-on activities that focus on environmental stewardship. There will also be live music from Twin Cities entertainers Matt Wilson and John Munson. Additionally, Minnesota Public Radio chief meteorologist Paul Huttner will deliver a keynote address at 3 p.m. There are so many great aspects of the event and I’m so excited to be a part of it!

The Science Museum of Minnesota’s new exhibit, the Future Earth exhibition, also opens that day! The exhibition explores the fact that humans are both the dominant agents of global climate change and the innovators who have it within our power to keep our planet thriving well into the future – it would be a great exhibition to check out while you’re enjoying the Earth Day event.

It’s going to be so much fun – come out and celebrate Earth Day with me!
