CRUMBS” AND “KID SPACE”
Since the Hallstrom Planetarium began presenting shows at Indian River State College back in 1993, we have served three distinct groups: college students, who take classes and practical labs in astronomy, celestial navigation, and observations on the basic structure and contents of the Universe; school children, from Kindergarten through 12th grade, come on free field trips and discover the wonders of outer space, viewing exciting programs that are tied in with public, private and home-school curriculums. And about every other weekend or so, we present shows for the general public, such as the talk I’m giving on Pluto, which will be Friday night and Saturday afternoon. These public shows are meant for grown-ups, but for the past two years we’ve also been doing kid space shows: One of these will be offered on Saturday morning at 11 am. Call 462-4750 for tickets, which are $3.
