October 4th, 2019 – January 4th, 2020
The My Sky exhibit invites children and adults to explore the Sun, the Moon, and the stars together, and gives families the chance to practice science skills such as observing, communicating, noticing patterns, predicting, imagining, and more – skills that are fundamental to astronomy and that scientists and engineers use every day. This immersive, fun, and inspiring exhibit will engage children, families and adults in joyful discovery experiences that foster an appreciation of the world, develop foundational science skills, and spark a lifelong love of learning.
