One event on December 17, 2022 at 5:00 pm

Celebrate the upcoming winter solstice with some holiday cheer at Kopernik! During this family-friendly event, we welcome you to dress in your most festive outfit and journey through our decorated science center. Along the way, you’ll meet our merry educators and participate in themed activities and demonstrations. Explore new horizons in Kopernik’s Portable Planetarium, where you can observe the night sky at the North Pole! If clear skies prevail, look to our horizons for a stellar light display and peer through our telescopes for views of Mars, Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, and the Christmas Tree Star Cluster. Activities are directed towards students in grades K–5.
The same event is also offered on Saturday, December 17. Both dates have two sessions (1.5 hour each): 5 PM and 6:30 PM and tickets are required.
Children 3 and under are free for this event.
