Our next upcoming event will be at a special date and time so that we can observe the stars! A physics professor, Dr. Joanne Rosvick, at Thompson Rivers University will be leading the evening at talking us about stars, space rocks and more. Bring your astronomy questions and nature journal to record the things you learn. We will have a chance to look at the moon and stars through the observatory on the roof! As this is somewhat weather permitting, we have two dates planned just in case. We will meet at 6:30pm on Monday March 26, if it is clear and Tuesday, March 27th if it isn’t. We will be in touch with more details closer to the event. We know evenings are busy times for families, so we will keep it to about an hour. Just long enough to see the moon! This is an indoor event at one location, so come on out even if you are running late.
Explorer Day Etiquette:
- Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
- Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
- Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
- Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
- Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
