Need some help learning to use that new—or old—telescope you haven't quite figured out? Bring it to the Museum of Science on February 8, when experts from the Friday Evening Stargazing team will provide you with tips on how to set up and use it. The event starts off indoors at 8:00 pm and then, weather permitting, moves to the roof of the garage, near the Museum's Gilliland Observatory.
*Please note: We will accommodate up to 25 telescopes, but more than 1 person per telescope. When you register, please register for the number of telescopes in your party, not the number of people in your party. Thank you!
When & Where
Museum of Science
One of the world's largest science centers and Boston's most attended cultural institution, the Museum introduces about 1.5 million visitors a year to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) via dynamic programs and hundreds of interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Its 10,000-square-foot Hall of Human Life draws on the latest discoveries in the life sciences to engage visitors in their own biology and health. Other highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Butterfly Garden and 4-D Theater. Reaching over 20,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. Its National Center for Technological Literacy®’s engineering curricula have reached an estimated 79,200 teachers and 6.9 million students nationwide. Visit mos.org.
