Description

The Stellar Nursery presents:

Cosmic Color Funk

Pre-Schoolers, this one’s for you! First, we’ll host a read-aloud from the popular children’s book Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by James Dean & Eric Litwin. In this funky tale, Pete the Cat goes walking down the street wearing his brand-new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change color as he steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries, and other big messes! But no matter what color his shoes are, Pete keeps movin’ and groovin’…because it’s all good. After the story, we’ll explore some colors found in our world, in the sky, and across the solar system in a short planetarium program just for our youngest learners.

Note: this program is intended for children ages 5 years old and younger and their primary caregivers. In order to ensure that as many children as possible have access to this opportunity, please refrain from bringing additional adult guests. We’d also like to ask that, if possible, please leave older siblings at home. If this is not possible, help us ensure a safe learning space for the preschoolers by explaining to your older child that they should be a silent supporter, not a participant, in this program.

Fulldome Film: no • Live Planetarium Content: yes • Guest Speaker: no

ABOUT OUR SHOWS

Monthly public programs at FSU’s digital planetarium are about one hour in length and may include some combination of: a fulldome feature film, a short talk presented by a guest speaker, and/or a live planetarium segment. A live planetarium segment may include a tour of the seasonal night sky and/or other multimedia elements presented with live narration.

The Stellar Nursery is a series of events designed to spark the imaginations of children aged 5 years and younger, along with their caregivers, with science-related programs for our youngest learners.

To ensure visitor safety and quality of presentation, planetarium doors will remain closed once the show has begun. Late arrivals will not be admitted. If pre-registered guests have not checked within 5 minutes of start time, their tickets will be released.

Suggested Donation: $5 per guest

Please review directions and parking information in advance.
