Science education is a family adventure at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center! Your day at Morehead may include exciting planetarium shows, hands-on exhibit activities, a co-starring role in “Science LIVE!” and photos on a giant sundial. Begin your adventure in Morehead’s Star Theater, where you’ll experience any of eight different planetarium shows, including “Magic Tree House Space Mission” (featuring characters from the popular children’s book series). Morehead’s Star Theater is the only planetarium in the United States that trained astronauts in celestial navigation – the men who walked on the Moon came here to learn about the stars! You’ll see memorabilia from Morehead’s days as a hub for astronaut training in the History Hallway. Nearby, you’ll find hands-on activities in the “Zoom In: Science at the Extremes” exhibit. Continue your adventure in the NASA Digital Theater, with “Science LIVE!” demonstration shows (with audience participation) and “Science 360” presentations. Throughout the year, Morehead offers free and low-cost family-friendly events, ranging from Family Science Days to LEGO-palooza to monthly skywatching sessions. Programs for adults include monthly “Current Science Forums” (offering a sneak peek at cutting-edge science research), classes, and guest lecturers (including Nobel and Pulitzer prize winners!). Check Morehead’s schedule online and plan a visit soon. Enjoy other attractions at UNC-Chapel Hill while you’re here!
