Astronomy in the City


Join us for an afternoon of fun and engaging science activities on Saturday December 4th from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. At Astronomy in the City you will be able to explore an interactive science exhibit on telescopes, enjoy planetarium shows and science-theater performances.

Astronomy in the City, so called in reference to the urban areas served by our programs, is a showcase for the informal science education initiatives promoted by the Education and Outreach Group at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research.

On December 4th youth in the Youth Astronomy Apprenticeship program will share insights about their personal exploration of the universe with family members, friends, community members and researchers from MIT and Harvard.
