Earth Day at Fernbank Science Center
April 22 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
In observance of Earth Day, Fernbank Science Center will be presenting two special programs in the Jim Cherry Memorial Planetarium on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
At 11 am, our usual “Sky Tonight” exploration of the night’s sky will be replaced with “Earth Today,” an exploration of the volcanoes, earthquakes, and other geologic forces actively changing our planet in real time. Regular admission prices of $7 for adults and $5 for students apply. As always, DeKalb Schools employees get in free with their ID badges.
At 1:00 p.m., we present “Where on Earth?” We will use our new 4K digital projection system and software to take stunning field trips to as many places around the globe as we can go in an hour. We will draw locations from suggestions submitted by the audience. So think of your favorite spot and come join us for a unique voyage! This presentation is free for all.
