Water in the Solar System: Water, Water, Everywhere!
Organizations & Clubs


Children of all ages can investigate different aspects of water and its importance on our Earth and in our solar system. These recommendations are tailored for organizations and clubs such as libraries, planetariums, science centers, astronomy clubs, and scout troops. Check out the Featured Activity tab for ways to celebrate Earth Day in your informal learning program!

Events could include bringing in speakers, including NASA Solar System Ambassadors, to share how NASA missions and programs are helping us learn more about Earth, its water resources, and where we might find water elsewhere in the solar system. Be sure to submit photographs, artwork, music, or words of your community enjoying your activities to Share Your Stories.
