By Macaroni KID June 20, 2023

Step into a world of events this week where learning, creativity, and exploration come alive! From investigating space with NASA astronauts to making your own sweet treats, we've put together a list of free and virtual events meant to ignite your child's curiosity and inspire their imagination!

Here are our top five picks for virtual fun June 21-28: 

1. Investigate Space with a NASA Astronaut

We all know that Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system and that Mars is the one humans can most likely visit. But how do we know that? And how have we figured out how to launch rockets, survive on space stations, and deflect oncoming asteroids? Join former astronaut Leland Melvin for an interactive investigation of the science behind space exploration. June 21
