The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is hosting a number of amazing events over spring break that the whole family will enjoy.

Not only will the centre have a number of its regular offerings, but it will also have some special activities and programming. Specifically, the centre will host programming focused on “Exploring the Sun” as well as “Exploring the moon.”

These family friendly activities will run daily throughout Spring Break, and the Space Centre will also premier The Sun: Our Living Star in the planetarium star theatre on March 16th.

The first week’s theme will be “Explore the Sun,” and kids can build their own Parker Solar Probes, or a sun dial, and weather permitting do some solar viewing through the telescope.

The second week’s theme will be “Explore the Moon,” and kids may celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon mission with a special craft project. They’ll also learn what it takes for astronauts to prepare for a mission to the moon with some special astronaut training activities.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation by working to transform existing relationships to emphasize open dialogue, mutual understanding and respectful collaborations.
