This program must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.

Our solar system is a big place. Discover just how big in this introductory lab for young space explorers. Learn what objects make up our solar system, how they move and how far away they are from each other. Visit Science On a Sphere for a tour of planets and moons using real satellite imagery. You’ll never look at Earth the same way again.

This program takes place in the Watershed Lab in the Earth Science Exhibit Hall, and features the Science On a Sphere exhibit. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
