Written by: developer

The Space Foundation Discovery Center has added special evening hours one Thursday each month, for “Star Days” Thursday, leading into a special “Star Days” Saturday at the beginning of each month.

There are monthly themes with related crafts, presentations in Science On a Sphere®, demonstrations by Cool Science and outdoor telescopes (weather permitting). The monthly “Star Days” activities are included in the price of regular Discovery Center admission.

The “Star Days” theme for April 3 and 5 is “Space Myths.” Join us for a visit with Cool Science® and an exploration of black holes and other space mysteries, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., on Thursday, April 3, and on Saturday, April 5, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

On May 1 and 3, the “Star Days” theme will be a “Summer of Discovery Preview.” See what we have planned when our “Summer of Discovery” kicks off on June 10. “Summer of Discovery” is a full 10 weeks of space-related educational activities for all ages at the Discovery Center. There are five two-week segments, each focusing on a specific theme. This summer’s themes are Oceans: Astronomy; Mars, Rovers and Robots; Rocketry; and A Taste of Space Technology.
