On Thursday, July 26th, the Hudson River Museum was at Cross County Shopping Center, putting on a series of science projects as part of SummerFest on the Cross County Green. During the “Summer Skies” event, visitors participated in demonstrations and projects and created items to take home. They explored gravity and light, and made of a model of the NuSTAR space telescope – a mission which probes the most energetic events in the Universe, utilizing precision optics assembled in Westchester. They were able to become the Earth and experience the phases of the moon, make planet postcards, and create and launch their own rockets.
Museum staff selected or created the projects, and most of the staff at the event were the High School students of the HRM Junior Docents.
