Postponed

It is with deepest regret that we will have to postpone the James Webb Space Telescope Pre-Launch event set to happen this Saturday, December 4th due to a rise in Covid cases in the area schools.  We hope to host the event in February of 2022.  Thank you all for registering and expressing your interest.  We are still presenting planetarium shows in December on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 6:30 pm and 7:15 pm.  

 

We apologize for any inconvenience and wish everyone well.

The Ho Tung Visualization Lab are partnering with the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways and Star 'Gate to host a pre-launch event for the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. 

 

*Note the actual launch is scheduled for December 22nd.

Registration is required for this event.  

 

We will have lots of science demos, planetarium shows, food, prizes, etc.  

Demos will include: Dry Ice Comets, Weather & Atmosphere Demos, Light & Optics Demo, Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream, Scale Model of Solar System, Solar Observing, Volcano Demos, and more.

 

The event is aimed at school aged children under 16 but is open to all.
