On Friday, Science Museum Oklahoma, in conjunction with Lockheed Martin’s internationally recognized education initiative, will celebrate space exploration during its annual Space Day festivities. On this day,

Science Museum Oklahoma educators and staff will coordinate various interactive stations aligned with components of the NASA space program.

Space Day activities are included in the museum’s general admission price.

Cmdr. John Herrington (USN, Ret.), former NASA astronaut and first American Indian in space, will be present for Space Day activities after 11 a.m.

About 3,000 students are pre-registered for Space Day, and the programs are designed to inspire children of all ages to explore space and to pursue careers in the field.
