A chance to experience space!
The Tuscarawas County Library (Ohio) is inviting teens in grades 6-12 to the Carnegie Science Center of Pittsburg’s Inflatable Classroom on June 14th.
“The World in Motion,” program will start at 11:30 a.m. and will discuss what is in motion in the solar system, including how Earth’s movements give us day, night and the days of the year.
Participants will also learn more about gravity and how to find planets in the night sky.
“Many teens enjoy looking skyward, but some have never been to a planetarium before,” said Public Service Associate Darlene Dotto. “This program is a great opportunity for teens to have a chance to enjoy a fun and informative experience that will have them thinking more when they look skyward.”
Lunch will also be provided at 12:30 p.m.
Then, at 1:30 p.m. “The Sun,” program will start. Library officials note it will be slightly more advanced than the previous program, diving deeper into information about the sun’s age, energy source, and importance to supporting life on Earth.
“We love the opportunity to provide a way for area teens to stay interested in STEM and STEAM programs throughout their summer break,” said Library Director Michelle McMorrow Ramsell. “This program is going to be such a fun way to make a virtual visit to other planets and learn more about the night sky.”
Teens are encouraged to attend both programs but can register for just one if they wish.
