Evening at PARI

Friday, Nov 10, 2017 –

Time: 7:00pm – 9:30pm

The program is part of PARI’s monthly Evening at PARI series and will feature presentations by PARI astronomers. The observing session will include possible views of Uranus, Neptune and Venus in the morning. Featured constellations during this time include Pegasus, Andromeda, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, and Perseus. “The clear, cool nights of the fall season are a wonderful time to observe the night sky,” said PARI Education Director Christi Whitworth. “During this special Evening at PARI we will explore the nighttime skies, share constellation stories and provide observing tips. This program is designed for all ages and knowledge levels, so we encourage family participation. Weather permitting, the presentation will be in our outdoor amphitheater planetarium and we will use PARI telescopes to conduct the observations.” The Evening at PARI program will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a campus tour, including a trip to the Space Artifacts Gallery and the newly expanded Meteorite & Mineral Gallery. The presentation and observing session will follow. The program will take place regardless of the weather so attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately for being outside and to wear comfortable walking shoes. Reservations are required and will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. the day of the event. Evening at PARI programs cost $20 per adult and $15 for seniors/military/students. Children ages 6-11 are $5 and ages 5 and under are admitted free. Register and pay online at www.pari.edu or call (828) 862-5554. For additional information contact PARI Education Director Christi Whitworth at cwhitworth@nullpari.edu.

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017 –

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm

PARI SciGirls programs target girls ages 9-14 and are designed to change how girls think about science by engaging them with fun, hands-on projects.  Monthly programs on a variety of topics are scheduled on varying Tuesdays during the school year at PARI or at the 4H Office in the Community Services Building in downtown Brevard, NC.

Each month’s program will lead young girls to try a different facet of science and bring real connections to that field for their pursuit beyond the monthly program.  Local, statewide, national and international opportunities to explore science will be shared.  Connections to a national PBS website celebrating girls’ explorations in science will also be emphasized each month.

Program registration is requested and a fee of $10 is required.  This fee is non-refundable.  Confirmation of payment of the fee holds the girl’s spot in our program. 

PARI requires that an adult accompany all children while on PARI’s campus.  Please plan to enjoy the program with this in mind.

Programs run during the school year (September – May) and are typically scheduled the last Tuesday of the month.
