Astronomy 101 
April 1 & 8 @ 7pm 

Astronomy 101, April 1 & 8 at 7pm

Each night, the stars reveal the entire universe. The ancients described them by the myriad of myths of the gods, and placed them in the sky to remind us of our mortal limitations. Too few people spend a moment to look up, but with Covid restrictions people are looking for new interests in their own backyards. What better time to begin your understanding of the night sky!  

Join Dr. Brian Pihack from the Niagara Centre of Astronomy as he takes you on an extraordinary tour of the heavens over two presentations.

Get Mad at Home Science Show
Friday April 16 @11am
Doing Mad Science through the screen is great, but we know you miss the hands-on of in-person programming. This show focuses on the doing rather than the watching. Follow along experiments allow kids to take part in a more engaging way using supplies that you can find at home. Please note that some preparation is required to ensure your child gets the full experience, so make sure you read the whole thing before signing up!
