Exploring the Moon and Beyond

Thursday, December 9, 2021

Join Dr. Elaine Westbrook and BPL’s Teen Services for an out-of-this-world workshop on Dec. 9th, 5-6pm! We will explore our moon and its relationship to Earth and the Sun. Participants will leave with basic facts about the moon and the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as a teaching tool to share their new knowledge with others. This will be the first in a series of workshops to be launched in 2022 in anticipation of the newest NASA mission, Artemis I, for our return to the moon. Open to 11-17 year olds. Dr. Elaine Westbrook, assistant professor in the College of Education at MSUB, has over two decades experience teaching STEM. Her career path to formal education started when she was selected to attend a NASA training for the James Webb Telescope (launching in December 18). She has participated in NASA trainings all over the United States from the SETI Institute in California to Kennedy Space Center in Florida and now brings all her knowledge about astronomy to Billings, MT.
