An official White House Easter Egg is in space where astronauts will demonstrate the laws of gravity to students everywhere.

First Lady Jill Biden will transform the White House South Lawn and Ellipse into a school community with educational activities for all to enjoy during this year’s White House Egg Roll, the White House announced this week.

The Egg Roll tradition dates back to 1878. Now, the First Lady plans the day’s events.

A teacher for more than three decades, Biden is employing the theme “EGGucation,” to promote fun while integrating learning.

The Monday event includes the classic egg rolling and hunting, as well as a School House Activity Area, Reading Nook, Talent Show, Field Trip to the Farm, Picture Day, a Physical “EGGucation” Zone, a Snack Time Tent and more.

NASA sent one of the wooden Official White House Easter Eggs up to the International Space Station, so astronauts could demonstrate the laws of gravity to students everywhere. Videos of the Official White House Easter Egg in space will be available on the White House’s social media platforms leading up to the event.

Approximately 30,000 people are expected to take part in this year’s Easter “EGGucation” Roll, including thousands of military and veteran families, caregivers and survivors. Families of the U.S.S. Delaware and U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords, the U.S. Naval vessels for which the First Lady is the sponsor, are among those invited.

Tickets for the general public were distributed to guests from across the country through an online public lottery. The American Egg Board is continuing its 45-year legacy of participation in the event.

This year’s event will be broken into nine sessions, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The traditional egg roll that started the annual event includes kids using a wooden spoon to roll colored eggs in a race across the South Lawn.

In addition to traditional events and educational activities, the event will also feature numerous costumed characters strolling the White House grounds, including:

— Bluey and Bingo.

    Joe is a real president. Trump sat on his balls and insulted people for four years while the economy overheated… cut his own taxes and brought home the bacon for rich people. Money doesn’t trickle down so MAGA is only a graft and scam coming from the billionaires and the rich…a cheesy carnival side show to distract from pockets being picked.

    Mike, great work. I applaud your efforts enormously because I currently make more than $36,000 per month from just one straightforward online business! These are dv02 simply the most basic internet operations jobs, yet even with just $29,000 you can start building a consistent online income.

    Joe is a Hologram. Rice and Obama are running things well behind the scenes. Communism is the goal. They will turn on all you sycophants eventually.
