Mission Remote Summer Reading Club 2020: Explore Our Universe!


Summer Reading Club: Explore Our Universe is ON!

In light of ongoing physical distancing, PRPL has envisioned this year’s SRC as a FREE pick-up-and-go package jam packed with seven weeks of out-of-this-world fun designed to engage school-aged children, ages 5-14, with libraries and reading, throughout the summer!

BUT there are still plenty of virtual ways that you can participate. Visit bcsrc.ca and click “Join Here” for more inspiring literacy and space activities you can enjoy from home, including:

  • The Summer Reading Challenge with virtual badges!
  • Weekly Stay at Home Activities.
  • Video demonstrations.
  • Ask an Astronomer events.

Still want to read the chosen Jr. and Sr. book club titles? Visit PRPL’s online collection to download an eAudiobook or eBook of “Fortunately the Milk” (Junior) or “The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole” (Senior).

Visit PRPL’s YouTube to watch weekly demos of our package activities, many of which are made using simple materials that you can gather at home. Find out what’s coming next in PRPL’s Explore Our Universe Brochure and Calendar. Return to this page for weekly mission tips, links and bonus challenges. We’ll be sharing all of the Mission activity sheets and printable components here so that you can participate even if you didn’t get a package!
