Super Stellar Friday: Discovery Lab Opening

Doors open at 6:30 PM. 

We are proud to announce the opening of our Discovery Lab, a new permanent space specifically designed for tinkering, making, and discovery, at August's Super Stellar Friday Event. The Discovery Lab will feature fun and engaging hands-on activities that foster creative problem solving skills, perseverance, and team-building skills. It will be installed in the gallery currently housing the Riding the Waves of History exhibit near the Planetarium entrance; this will create a permanent space that will be able to change on a regular basis with new activities and layouts, based visitors’ feedback and experiences. Be the first to discover what you can create in the Discovery Lab!

At 8:00 PM in the Planetarium, join us for a Tonight's Sky showing. Learn about the constellations, planets, and more visible in the night sky in addition to the spectacular super blue moon that happened on January 31.

Doors close at 9:30 PM.

The all-inclusive price for Super Stellar Friday at the Discovery Center is $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors, $8.50 for children 12 and under, and free for members. Pending clear skies, our observatory will be open and members of the NH Astronomical Society will be outside the Discovery Center with telescopes pointed to the sky, ready to share their knowledge and views from their telescopes for free.
