Meet Super Why and Princess Presto, two of the stars of the hit kids’ show “Super Why!” Plus, discover the uniqueness of sand through a wide range of demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Kids get to create their own piece of sand art to take home, make a unique keychain out of colorful sand, and take part in a community sand painting. They also get to take home two special spoons and conduct their own science experiments. Visitors can examine different types of sand through a microscope and take home samples of each.
New Tellus collectible trading cards will feature different types of sand from around the globe. The observatory will be open from 5 PM until 10 PM, and the planetarium will be playing Molecularium, a show perfect for kids of all ages.
Members of the International Sand Collectors Society, the Georgia Mineral Society, National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, and Georgia Tech will be helping out with the evening activities and demonstrations. To learn more about sand collecting visit www.sandcollectors.org.
