Kids and adults alike can explore the wonders of space for free at Miami Science Museum’s Fabulous First Friday event in October. Guests can “reach for the stars” during a free planetarium show, rooftop observatory viewing, and Activity Room for children three and older. For a nominal charge, attendees can also enjoy Miami Science Museum’s exhilarating laser shows.
Laser Show admission is $4 per child, and $8 per adult. For more information about the Laser Shows, visit: http://www.miamisci.org/www/planetarium_laser_shows.php.
During October's First Friday, the Activity Room for children ages three and older will feature supervised activities and demonstrations, starting just before 8 p.m. Also, the Ms. Cheezious food truck will be on site and will donate 10 percent of all sales to Miami Science Museum’s Upward Bound program. One of the U.S. Department of Education's TRIO programs, Upward Bound helps low income, first-generation college bound students to be prepared for postsecondary study, and to graduate college with a bachelor's degree in science, math, and technology related fields. For more information about the current Museum or our future home, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, visit www.miamisci.org or call (305) 646-4200.
