Join us on Thursday, July 11th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm for the third event in a series of four seasonal storytelling programs for families.

Michigan Humanities Touring Artist & Storyteller, Jenifer Strauss, will be merging years as a science teacher and storyteller in this interactive, wacky program filled with intergalactic stories, songs and DIY ideas for young space explorers.

Do the Planet Dance, orbit the moon, travel to the sun and the stars.

Participants will be making and launching their own straw rockets and making moon that they can take home!

This event is FREE and open to the public. Please RSVP here on MyNorth Tickets if you’re able — it helps us know how many to expect for this special event.
