Celebrating the Solar Eclipse with Science and Education at the Kentucky Science Center!

Special solar eclipse event offered at the Kentucky Science Center

On April 8th, the Kentucky Science Center in Louisville will be hosting a special event to celebrate the upcoming solar eclipse. The event will take place from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm and will feature a wide range of activities for guests to enjoy.

As part of the event, guests will have access to all 50,000 square feet of exhibits at the Kentucky Science Center, as well as participate in educational programming that has been stationed throughout the galleries. These activities will focus on topics such as eclipse viewing safety, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and an opportunity to view the partial eclipse.

During the event, guests can also create their own pinhole cameras or watch documentaries about NASA’s Space Shuttle program and more in the center’s four-story theater. Additionally, a limited number of free eclipse glasses will be distributed to attendees for safe viewing during the actual eclipse.

Mike Norman, CEO of the Kentucky Science Center, expressed excitement about the event and its ability to engage with guests about this exciting astronomical phenomenon. The special event is made possible in part by a NASA Kentucky Space Grant. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W. Main Street and is open seven days a week from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm.
