Looking to exercise your brain during winter break? Join us for some science-related family fun this weekend! Enjoy activities in our education wing, a special display in Collections Cove, and a sun-centered planetarium show to warm you up.
The Sun, Our Living Star
The Sun has been shining on our world for 4.5 billion years. It is our nearest star and our planet’s powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather, and all life. Discover the secrets of our star in this planetarium show and experience never-before-seen images of the Sun’s violent surface in immersive full-dome format.
Enjoy crafting your own snowy owl, and get in the spirit of animal track-making by wearing some cute animal ears!
