Not the Same Gift Everyone Else Gets

Got a curious young scientist on your birthday gift list?   Delight them with Science Kits from the Casper Planetarium.   The Green Rocket kit lets them use a recycled magazine and 2 plastic bottles to blast a paper rocket up to 80 feet in the air.   Build a 5-inch generator that can power an LED light with the Windmill Generator kit.   Learn to extract salt from sea water with the Clean Water Science kit. Create your own star projector with the Night Sky Projection Kit.   And those are just a few of the kits available.

Science kits are intended for kids 8 and older, and are priced from $13 to $20 in the Planetarium Gift Shop. (Open Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm; cash and checks welcome, but we can’t accept cards.)

Do you enjoy creating? Our sun print kits use ART WITH THE POWER OF THE SUN: Sun-printing is based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century. We have small, medium and large kits.

Fall Equinox

Also known as the Autumn equinox, occurs when sun moves directly over the Earth’s equator, bringing virtually the same amount of daylight and darkness on that day. This year’s fall equinox is on September 22.
