Star Girl Family Night-Laramie (K-12)
Star Girl Family Night seeks to expand girls' universe in a whole new way. This night will allow girls and families to see that science is all around us. We will go stargazing with someone who knows the planets and the stars, looking for the North Star, the Big Dipper, the Milky Way, and other constellations. This event will be held at the University of Wyoming Planetarium.
Participants will learn about constellations, related ancient stories, and exciting facts about various stars. Following the planetarium show (weather permitting) participants are encouraged to stay to observe the night sky. Look up and see how many constellations you remember.
When girls finish with this program they will be able to explain and show others what starry delights await in the night sky.
Junior Girl Scouts can use the information from this program to help them plan their outdoor adventure to earn their Camper Badge. Likewise, Juniors involved in the Get Moving Journey will notice how light pollution affects the night sky.
Check in will begin at 5:45 so that the program can start on time. Please note late arrivals may miss some of the program.
All registered girls should be accompanied by a registered adult. Other family members ages 5 and up are welcome to participate by registering as well. Girls should bring blue/yellow card.
Not a Girl Scout? Not a problem. Girls pay $12 for a membership and $2 for the program fee.
