Live Storytime: Margaret and the Moon

Join us for our April Storytime!

Margaret Hamilton loved numbers as a young girl. She knew how many miles it was to the Moon (and how many back). She loved studying math and using it to solve problems. Soon math led her to MIT and then to helping NASA put a person on the Moon! She wrote code that would allow the spacecraft’s computer to solve any problems it might encounter. Apollo 8. Apollo 9. Apollo 10. Apollo 11. Without her code, none of those missions could have been completed.

Registration is required for this live reading.

ASP staff and special guests will read our favorite illustrated children’s books about the sky and space, as well as share fun and easy activities and sky observations that families can do together at home. If you can’t make it live, you’ll be able to watch the archived video if available. Any of the activities will always be available.
