  • Volcanoes and Earthquakes 3:00–4:00 p.m. - Jeri Jones and Brittany Martin will present an interactive program about why we have volcanoes erupting in certain regions around the world and what is the importance of having these dramatic mountains. They will also discuss where earthquakes occur, how they are recorded and the dangers involved. All participants will erupt several types of volcanoes and make earthquakes. This program is designed for children.
  • Astronomy Night 7:15–9:00 p.m. - Jeri Jones and Brittany Martin will present an evening under the stars. Participants will view the moon, Jupiter and Saturn along with some of the summer favorite galaxies, star clusters and nebulae through telescopes.
