Hampton History Museum is back with another great line-up of FREE Family Fun for their Second Saturday Family Day! The theme this month is "Moon Math".

Description: The Hampton History Museum hosts a day of family fun exploring the world of Human Computers and the brilliant NASA female mathematicians of the hit film “Hidden Figures” whose use of math helped get the United States into space!

Children will be encouraged to challenge their minds with creative math problems related to navigation, astronomy, and rocketry. Through fun hands-on activities, families can explore the history of navigation, solve problems using compasses, and learn about celestial navigation. 

Representatives from the Virginia Air & Space Center are bringing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activity about math and robotics. Attendees can discover more about Human Computers with a special “Hidden Figures” project coming from the NASA Langley Research Center.

Where: Hampton History Museum, 120 Old Hampton Lane, Hampton VA
