Second Saturday Science

Second Saturday Science April 2024

April activities are focused on the IMAP mission and the skill of critical thinking. Join us for activities that test participants' ability to process through a challenge - as a team or own their own. These activities highlight this skill in the aerospace industry, and similarly, the IMAP team is working on the integration and installation of the instruments that will be part of the solar probe's package.

Don't forget to check out the April 8 eclipse! Since our Second Saturday event will be held after the eclipse, we will not host any activities on site on Monday, April 8. But, Challenger has solar viewers if you are in need. Simply reach out to us to set up a time for pick up. Email bmanis@challengercolorado.org.

Purchase a ticket for a planetarium show time, then plan to spend about 30 minutes before or after (except for 11:30a show) working on hands-on activities.


Registration will open on April 1st at 8:00 am.
