You're invited: Q&A with NASA astronauts on the International Space Station

Between noon and 1 p.m. ET on Jan, 7, the astronauts will answer prerecorded questions from aboard the International Space Station. At a special afterschool-hours event, NASA will host a Watch Party at 5 p.m. ET to view the astronaut Q&A from earlier in the day and have scientists and engineers on hand to answer questions from students live!


Nancy L. McConathy Library Event

Thursday, October 29th the Nancy L. McConathy Public Library will hold a STEM program as part of the LIGHTS ON Afterschool. This nationwide event, organized by the Afterschool Alliance, calls attention to the importance of afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the doors open. The McConathy Public Library is proud to be a LIGHTS ON Afterschool partner.

Our special guest will be Devonte Turner, Head of Circulation here at the library. Devonte will lead us as we engage, explore, and evaluate the Solar System. Once completed those who attend will be able to explain, evaluate, and elaborate more as they have gained more understanding of the concepts used in the program.
