In the evening, students will apply what they learned as they experience the dark skies at Yerkes Observatory. Students must attend the session with a chaperone (either a teacher or a parent.) Students are also recommended to come with an observing plan (specific stars and constellations.) Students may also bring their own telescopes for use during the evening session.
(There will be no cap to evening attendance.)
Afternoon session begins at 2pm and ends at 5pm. Observing will begin at 6pm as dinner ends. The event concludes at 8pm.
Cost $15 (includes pizza dinner and both the afternoon and evening session) $5 if only attending the evening observing session. This cost is per student. Chaperones (one per school) are free.
