NASA @ My Library Take Home Paper Craft: ISS Model

Kids and Teens in the 3rd-12th grade are invited to learn about the International Space Station through this exciting paper craft in the comfort of their own homes.

Each kit comes with glue, tape, scissors and a ton of accessories you can use to decorate your station model, including light up nodes.

Starting today you can pick up this take home craft at the Information Desk of the MPL. No sign ups are required, but kits are finite and we are limiting them to one per patron and household.
