DAYTON — What’s it like to be an astronaut? Children will learn all about it during free Astronaut Training programs this summer at many Dayton Metro Library locations. Presenters from the Armstrong Air & Space Museum lead the free programs.

“Kids will learn how astronauts train for a mission, see a real space suit up close and determine how fit they would be for space travel themselves,” said Tish Wilson, Assistant Director, Youth Services. “The programs include hands-on experiments and activities, incorporating science and technology lessons into fun, active experiences.”

The programs (some geared toward teens and tweens) take place June 6 through July 28 at the following Branch Libraries:

  • East, June 6, 2008 Wyoming Street, Dayton
  • Vandalia, June 21, 500 S. Dixie Drive
  • Westwood, June 29, 3207 Hoover Drive, Dayton
  • Northwest, June 29, 2410 Philadelphia Drive, Dayton
  • Brookville, July 14, 425 Rona Parkway Drive
  • Kettering-Moraine, July 14 (Christ United Methodist Church, Shroyer Road, Kettering)
  • Huber Heights, July 20, 6160 Chambersburg Road
  • Burkhardt, July 20, 4680 Burkhardt Avenue, Dayton
  • West Carrollton, July 27, 300 E. Central Avenue
