After-School STEAM: Virtual Planetarium

Thursday, September 16, 2021

It’s something cool after school, as we take a virtual field trip to Seattle’s Pacific Science Center and get a great look into the night sky.

Grades Pre-K-5: Join us for a special planetarium program, “Night Sky Tonight!”

Become a true backyard astronomer. Learn how living on a giant spinning ball changes what can be seen each night, discover how to find constellations, and even how the sky can be used to find directions!

About Pacific Science Center

Pacific Science Center began as the United States Science Pavilion during the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Millions came to explore the wonders of science, and upon closing ceremonies, the Science Pavilion was given new life as the Pacific Science Center, becoming the first U.S. museum founded as a science and technology center. Pacific Science Center ignites curiosity in every child and fuels a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us.

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
