Earlier this week we reminded you about Maker Fest in Lakewood Saturday, a great, free event for the whole family!
I wanted to make sure you also noticed that you can see a FREE show in the Science Dome while you’re there.
The Science Dome is the area’s only planetarium. Movies are digitally projected on a domed screen overhead while you sit in a plush theater seat. It’s really so cool.
Free shows will play through out Maker Fest at 12 pm, 12:45 pm, 1:30pm, 2:15 pm, 3 pm, 3:45 pm, and 4:30 pm.
The show is Space School, which shows how astronauts train underwater! It’s suitable for all ages, but is probably best for school age kids with an interest in the subject.
If it sounds like a little too much for your crew, do enjoy Maker Fest but wait until another weekend for the Science Dome, and go to one of the special children’s shows. The Science Dome shows all ages and children’s programs every Saturday, and while they aren’t normally free, regular tickets are just a few bucks! It’s a great deal, and such a fun outing. I’ve taken Henry to the children’s shows, and I’d recommend them for the preschool and primary aged crowd in particular. They’re interactive and a bit shorter than the others.
Disclosure-The Science Dome is a long time sponsor of the site, but they did not ask me to do this post or pay me extra for it. I just think it’s one of the coolest things around to do with your science minded kiddos! Do mention Sounds Fun Mom when you visit if you have a chance!
