Cosmic Explorer Workshops for Children Ages 4-6 Rauch Planetarium
The Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium will be celebrating the cold of the cosmos on Sunday, January 12th, continuing their Cosmic Explorer Workshops. Starting at 2:00 p.m., children ages 4 to 6 can learn about the chill in space as compared to winters on Earth during the Winter Wonderland workshop. Pre-registration is required for this workshop with members paying $20 and non-members paying $25. Afterwards, families and friends can enjoy the exclusive free showing of Comets: Elusive Frozen Wonders from 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.
During the workshop, professionals will provide demonstrations to amaze the kids. Children and adults will witness fruits, plants and vegetables instantly evolve into frozen sculptures via liquid nitrogen. At the end of the workshop, the kids get a real treat when they are served ice cream made with liquid nitrogen.
Families and friends of all ages can then gather in the Planetarium to get a firsthand look via film at comets. The film, Comets: Elusive Frozen Wonders, recognizes the fear and distrust comets initially brought in the early 1900s to the awe and wonder they bring today.
Join the Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium on Sunday, January 12th to celebrate the cosmos with the kids. The young ones can enter the virtual cosmos at the Cosmic Explorer Workshop and then enjoy the free showing of Comets: Elusive Frozen Wonders in the Planetarium.
