The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis sponsors this site that offers some fun and free activities all about outer space! There is information about the planets, astronomers, and various spacecraft. You can also design a space station!

When you get to the site, you’ll see a menu that includes:

*Field Guide to the Universe – Learn about our solar system including the sun, planets, moons, and asteroids. Get information on spacecraft that have been used for planetary and space probes. Read about astronomers during the “Age of Enlightenment” and modern times.

*Living In Space – Prepare for virtual lift-off and discover how NASA and the Russian space agency have solved the problems of living in space. Match wits with their engineers and design a human habitat like the International Space Station.

Click on any one and a new page opens with engaging pictures and illustrations as well as interesting text designed to spark kids’ interests and imaginations.
