This afternoon, Veronica Ann Zabala-Aliberto, President of the Phoenix chapter of the National Space Society, posted an article on Examiner.com about Earth and Space Exploration Day at Arizona State University, in October, 2009. The date is Saturday, 24 October, and as Veronica says in the article:
Mark your calendars for one of Arizona State University’s most interactive, educational outreach event of the year. On October 24, 2009, the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) will be holding its annual Earth and Space Exploration Day event from around 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. A family event hailed as a great Saturday to spend with the kids and at the same time learn about the Earth and our Solar System, this day is filled with many hands-on activities such as panning for gold, identifying your rock or mineral by Dr. Rock and the exhibit of actual meteorites that you can touch!
