Family Science Night Brings Outer Space To Basalt

Nov 29, 2018

The Basalt Middle School cafeteria will be transformed into a to-scale model of the solar system.


The middle school and Aspen Science Center are partnering up for the sixth annual Family Science Night. It’s open to any valley students in fourth through eighth grades.

The theme is space and participants will have the chance to built rockets, use telescopes, and even enjoy “astronaut ice cream.” Scientists will show kids how to use telescopes and identify stars and planets. And there will be a screening of the documentary "Science Fair."


Maya Hunt,  Educational Programs manager for Aspen Science Center says the event is for the  the whole family. "Science is intended for people of all ages. And it's great when adults don't lose the kind of magic you can feel while learning," said Hunt.


The event is from 6-8:30 p.m. in the Basalt Middle School cafeteria.
