If you are looking for something to do in the Northeast Los Angeles area that is fun, interesting, and best of all, FREE, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena is hosting its annual Open House at their facility from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM today, May 16, 2010. Visitors will get a chance to see models of Mars ROVERS and other spacecrafts, watch videos and demonstrations about earth and space science, as well as speak to NASA scientists and engineers & ask them questions about space travel and space exploration. It sounds like a really interesting and educational experience - I am going to try to make it over there today with my daughter to check it out if I can.
You can find out information and details here:
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is located at 4800 Oak Grove Drive in Pasadena, off the 210 freeway at the Berkshire Avenue / Oak Grove Drive exit. Parking is available near the Oak Grove main gate and the eastern boundary of JPL, accessible from Windsor Avenue via the Arroyo Blvd. exit avenue of the 210 freeway. Their phone number for information is 818-354-0112
Have a great Sunday!
