Description

The Stellar Nursery presents:

Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me

Pre-Schoolers, this one’s for you! First, we’ll host a read-aloud from the classic children’s book Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle. In this charming story of family togetherness, a father goes about the seemingly impossible task of getting the Moon for his daughter. Along the way, the two spend precious quality time together and learn a little bit about the world around them. After the reading, our young guests will get a chance to participate in a short planetarium program that’s just right for them. We’ll be exploring – what else? – the Moon!

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 observer, 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.
