Cosmic Explorer Workshops

Inquisitive 4-6 year olds have a blast at our Cosmic Explorer Workshops. Their love of science is sparked as they explore from beneath the Earth's surface to the edges of the universe. Fun and excitement are front and center at these engaging workshops as your little one learns at the speed of light!

More About the Planetarium

 It's a short journey to the planetarium for Girl Scouts to take journeys exploring plants, rocks and soils to the wonders of water to being responsible with energy to learning about air and our atmosphere.

 

Boy Scouts can learn about constellations, stars, and the planets as well as light pollution at our planetarium shows...or they  can schedule a workshop offered in conjunction with the Louisville Astronomical Society to delve more deeply into the requirements of their astronomy badge.

The planetarium is an out-of-this-world venue for a special group outing or a special event! From weddings and family reunions to corporate events and business meetings, we offer a unique facility for a memorable occasion.
