Hey, Star Wars fans. It’s our day to celebrate as Star Wars Day lands on Space Day, both celebrated this year on May 4.
Space Day will be May 3, next year, while Star Wars Day will always remain on the 4th. It will be some time before they share the same day again, so gear up and get the STEM Wars started.
TimeAndDate.com says, “the origin of (Star Wars Day) comes from a play on the words may the force be with you, an often quoted phrase in the Star Wars movies.” Whereas, Space Day was created in 1997 to “promote the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields among young people.”
