As part of the Plutopalooza events, celebrating the space probe New Horizons’ fly-by of Pluto, the Museum of Nature & Science will host a workshop fusing the worlds of art and science. Students will learn about astronomy, remotely control a telescope to take an image of a celestial object, and process the image for visual impact. Students will then use the image as the basis of an art project.
The free, three-day workshop will take place Tuesday through Thursday, June 30 – July 2. Registration is open to students grades 5 through 8. While the workshop is free, space is limited and pre-registration is required. Contact the museum for specifics and to register: 575-522-3120. Website: http://las-cruces.org/museums.
