What does it take to spot a star or a planet? Join astronomer Allyson Sheffield of LaGuardia Community College as she reveals how she does it (and the tools she needs). All intergalactic explorers will construct a telescope that is a replica of the one Galileo used to observe moons orbiting Jupiter, test out a spectrograph, and have an up-close encounter with the chemistry of stars.
Note: This is a student-only program for kids in the 4th grade and up. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this one-hour event.
