Bring your friends and family to a full day of science fun, at our annual aerospace festival. We will have STEM stations throughout the Discovery Center, with scientists, engineers, educators and volunteers from NASA, Raytheon, Elbit Systems of America, the NH Astronomical Society, Plymouth State University’s Meteorology Department, the NH Space Grant Consortium, Mad Science, Squam Lakes Science Center and more!

Meet the man who was at the helm of NASA from 2001-04, as former NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe gives us his perspective on space exploration, and awards the Alex Higgins Memorial Space Camp Scholarships to three lucky winners. And get ready for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, as we premiere our newest planetarium show, CapCom Go!


Admission price for the day is all inclusive -shows, activities, talks and exhibit exploration are all covered! Our cafe will be open, or bring your own lunch and picnic outside on our grounds (unless it’s raining, then picnic inside in our Unitil Room!).
