Pearson Field Education Center will offer a range of public programs to bring the excitement of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) to families
VANCOUVER — Pearson Field Education Center, a program of The Historic Trust, has joined hundreds of sites across the country to celebrate the release of the first science images from the James Webb Space Telescope, NASA’s next great space science observatory. Pearson Field Education Center will offer a range of public programs to bring the excitement of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) to families.
Pearson Field Education Center officials have partnered with Airway Science for Kids to help our community celebrate this amazing feat of science and engineering. People of all ages and backgrounds will find inspiration in Webb’s new view of the cosmos, which will fundamentally change our understanding of the universe for this generation and many to come.” says Michelle Marra, Director of Education at The Historic Trust.
Webb is the largest and most complex space science telescope ever built – the premier observatory of the next decade. This international mission, led by NASA in partnership with the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, launched Dec. 25, 2021. After unfolding in space into its final form, Webb successfully arrived at its destination nearly 1 million miles from Earth and began preparing for science operations.
The observatory, which is designed to see the universe in the infrared, will push the field of astronomy into a new era. Webb will be able to study light from distant parts of the universe for the very first time – the first galaxies that formed over 13.5 billion years ago – and give us insight into how our universe formed. It will also peer into dusty stellar nurseries to explore distant worlds orbiting other stars and observe objects in our own solar system. Webb will extend the scientific discoveries of other NASA missions like the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-ray Observatory, and Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite.
Webb Space Telescope Party is free to attend thanks to generous sponsorship from Columbia Credit Union. Guests will be ‘wowed’ by a live stream as NASA reveals the first images from the Webb Space Telescope. There will also be hands-on activities exploring the innovation and technology of the Webb Telescope and an opportunity to create space art!
