Summerwood Pediatrics Presents: “Be The Astronomer” At The MOST, 30 June 2018

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

A great event happening at The MOST at the end of the month from noon to 4:00 p.m.:

Be the Scientist” Saturdays allow visitors to learn, engage, and explore the activities of a different type of scientist each month. Visitors receive an explorer card to track progress through the program’s three steps: Learn, Engage, Explore. Step 1 (Learn) features a tabling exercise teaching the basic principles of the monthly scientist’s discipline. Visitors move to a different location for Step 2 (Engage), which features a tabling exercise including hands-on interaction in an activity the scientist might undertake in real life. Finally, visitors encounter Step 3 (Explore), which is an exploration of a MOST exhibit relating to the work of the monthly scientist. Make your way through each step successfully and have your explorer card punched to mark your completion. Complete 12 sessions to earn your special mystery prize! All are welcome to participate! Most suitable for children ages 6 and up.

June 30 – Be the Astronomer
July 28 – Be the Marine Biologist
August 25 – Be the Geologist
September 29 – Be the Nutritionist (Food & Exercise)

With luck, the touring Hubble exhibit will be available at the same time:

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope: New Views of the Universe is a 2,200 square-foot exhibit that immerses visitors in the magnificence and mystery of the Hubble mission and introduces the James Webb Space Telescope, which will be NASA’s premier observatory. The exhibit features a scale model of the Hubble Space Telescope as well as several “satellite” units that provide viewers with a hands-on experience with the same technology that allows Hubble to gaze at distant galaxies, and feature Hubble’s contributions to the exploration of planets, stars, galaxies and the universe.

The MOST Offers FREE Summer Camp! Spots Limited!

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

This in from the TACNY email list about a great summer opportunity at The MOST for students starting 9th grade this fall.

Students graduating 8th grade can learn about
environmental science by conducting field experiments

If you have a child who’s entering ninth grade in the fall, The MOST has the perfect camp to keep them thinking this summer: Honeywell Summer Science Week.

Students spend July 10-14 out in the field conducting real scientific research as they learn about factors that stress the Onondaga Lake watershed. They also learn what Honeywell has done to clean up the lake, which was once considered the most polluted lake in the country. Then students come back for a day July 19 to discuss their research and present what they learned.

Best of all, thanks to the generous sponsorship from Honeywell, the camp is FREE to participants!

To apply for Honeywell Summer Science Week, contact Michael Amadori or Peter Plumley as soon as possible. There are only 15 spaces left!
