Art and Astronomy - Winter Activity Days

Besser Museum for Northeast Michigan
491 Johnson Street,
Alpena, MI 49707

The Besser Museum for Northeast Michigan will be hosting a series of activity days for students ages 8-11. Drop-off is at 12:00, and pick-up is at 2:00pm.

Lessons include:

February 23 – Space Missions and Discoveries:

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, let’s take the time to remember some of the many other discoveries and adventures that changed our world today! What kinds of missions should we take in the future?

March 30 – Hawaiian Skies Live:

Still feeling the winter blues? Warm up a little as we learn about the special tropical ecology of the Hawaiian Islands! Being so much nearer to the equator, the night sky is sure to look a bit different too!

Our lessons are all STEAM-focused to support a full learning experience! Planetarium Coordinator and resident astrophysicist, Johnathan Winckowski, brings his scientific knowledge to the table with in-depth discussions and Fulldome visuals. Education Coordinator, Amanda Kucharek, accentuates the “Art” in “STEAM” with her background in Art Education and thoughtful activity stations. Together, they designed special planetarium shows and art activities for these days only!

Each session costs $10 to attend. There will be a 50-student limit, so pre-register soon! You must fill out an emergency contact form by end-of-day Feb. 22, and/or March 29.
