SPACE DAY! – Open to the Public
May 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
May the 4th be with us! From the very first year of PARI’s existence, we have designated the first Saturday in May as Space Day, an all-day open house (free general admission*) that attracts hundreds of visitors. In addition to all the regular attractions at PARI, during Space Day our research and educational programs are highlighted at locations throughout the campus, with Learning Center staff, students and volunteers on hand to demonstrate and explain.
This year we are pleased to celebrate the science of Star Wars and are excited to offer exciting activities* including the Droid Workshop (building and entering your own droid into a competition); Costume Contest, and Planetary Explorations at the AdventureDome!
Galactic snacks will be available in our restaurant Smiley’s, and please feel free to contact us with questions and additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-862-5554.
We look forward to seeing you for Space Day 2019 at PARI!
* General admission to Space Day is free with a small fee for special programming and AdventureDome planetarium shows. General admission includes access to PARI’s NASA artifact’s collection, and gem/mineral exhibit.
All proceeds benefit the Learning Center at PARI’s educational outreach programs.
