MAMIE DOUD EISENHOWER PUBLIC LIBRARY


NASA Theater Family PresentationS

In 2014, we were thrilled to present our popular NASA program, Art & the Cosmic Connection, to a large audience of families as a summer outreach program. At the beautiful Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library in Broomfield, CO, parents and young children learned to "read" the geologic stories present on worlds of our solar system using basic art concepts. The event included a theater presentation and live drawing activity. Learners toured the solar system while discovering how the elements of art relate to planetary science.

We returned to the library in 2016 for a theater production of the new Earth edition of our program. During the Goldilocks Planet Project, families became
"water detectives" - exploring hydrology on our home world through art concepts.
