Arkansas SkyDome Portable Planetarium and Science Museum

Math / Science Night Programsskydome_fair

Math and Science night are a popular school program that showcases exhibitors from various disciplines of science.  Typically a school will host one in the evening and invite representatives from different organizations to participate.  We would love the opportunity to participate in such events.  As there is usually not enough time to do full programs, but merely a brief demonstration of the SkyDome, we do not charge for attending Math / Science nights in our local area.  Weather and sunset permitting we can also setup telescopes outside in lieu of the SkyDome.
