Library Programs: Universe of Stories

Is your library taking part in the Universe of Stories summer reading program? If that's a yes, we're excited to share a few complementary offerings to enhance your summer programing. They will help you engage your community of young minds as they complete their reading journey. 


Featured Summer Program

The Universe Rocks!

Bring the RMSC to your site to present this exciting and engaging program. We'll explore our universe with this hands-on experience from the Rochester Museum & Science Center's education team. Join us in launching seltzer rockets and examining the same type of rocks as found on the moon. Together we'll discover how to build your own homemade “space suit”  (not suitable for extraterrestrial travel) and feel the difference between Earth’s gravity and the Moon’s gravity. We'll even make personal mini-planetariums to present a star show at home! Along with the help of the Universe of Stories summer reading list, the imagination of every young attendee is sure to be set into orbit.

Age Range: 5 - 13

Group Size: Up to 30 Children

Cost: $125.00


Call: 585.697.1942


Reading List Completion Reward

We're excited to offer all readers who complete the Universe of Stories reading log one free youth pass, with a paid adult pass! Please contact us if you're interested in distributing these passes to your community of readers who accomplish the reading challenge.

Not familiar with Universe of Stories? This is the 2019 summer reading program many libraries across the country are participating in.
