Families adventure to space at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center
With the introduction of Family Adventures in Space, the offerings for families at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s planetarium continue to grow. Introduced in March, this program provides another opportunity for audiences of all ages to explore outer space together.
Each weekend, families at the Bay Village institution will travel through space, visit different objects in the Solar System, explore constellations in the night sky and learn about NASA’s missions. The program runs Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 p.m. in the planetarium which was transformed in 2014. Tickets are just $3 per person and guests are invited to explore the rest of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center at which admission and parking are always free.
“The Center provides families with excellent opportunities to connect with our natural universe and with each other. We’re thrilled that this new program provides us with another way in which to do that,” says Executive Director Catherine Timko.
Family Adventures in Space joins the already family-friendly lineup of You-niverse (for all ages), Twinkle Tots (for children ages 0-3), Stellar Stars (for ages 3-7) and the children’s full dome shows (for ages 4-12). Programs run daily and the entire schedule can be found at www.lensc.org or by calling 440-871-2900.
