Saturn-5 Saturdays are a series of family activities on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Each activity will have a different space theme.
Collect the code words at a minimum of four Saturn-5 Saturday sessions and enter them below to receive an invitation (one child plus adult) to our Mission Accomplished wrap-up event in the Planetarium on December 21, 2013, at 9:30 am.
|Next Session: Create an Alien|
Artist’s conception of Kepler-62f, an exoplanet planet about 1,200 light-years
from Earth. It is in the “habitable zone” around its star. Could alien life live here?
May 18 12:30pm - 3:30pm - Create an Alien – Are there aliens living on Earth? Does your barista look a little strange? Is your fourth grade teacher from the Andromeda Galaxy? We might never know if we have been visited by aliens, but we can make a good guess as to what they might look like based on the environment in which they live. The size, make up and position of an alien world will heavily influence what life on that world would evolve to look like. Need some inspiration? Have a look at just some of the fictional creatures from one popular film series.
Join us May 18 as we create an alien world and a real model alien inhabitant; both of which you can take home with you. Free with admission or membership. 12:30 - 3:30pm. Family fun!
Remember to check back here for information on future Saturn-5 Saturdays.
