About Welcome to the Moon

Get ready for the Moon!

It's been more than 50 years since the first humans ventured to the Moon. Are you ready to take your own lunar tour?

Author Marianne Dyson's presentation introduces kids to the Apollo Program by taking them on a mock tourist trip to the moon and includes an orbit around the moon to familiarize tourists with lunar geography, and then covers the major reasons why people are heading to the Moon. 
Spacecraft models, demonstrations, "pops" from the author's Apollo book, "Welcome to the Moon", help newcomers understand basic properties of the moon and how its resources can be used to ensure humanity's long-term survival as well as for fun and profit. Books will be available to purchase from Monkey and Dog.
