Family Astro Activities

What is a Family Astro Take-Home Activity?

These activities (games and kits) were designed for Family Astro event participants to take home and do on their own, thereby providing an opportunity for continued learning at home with family and friends. There's a Take-Home Activity associated with each one of our Leader Kits.

What Take-Home Activites are available?
