At the Star Party, Acton and Boxborough 4th graders and their families become astronomers for a night. (Note: Students must be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times.) The Star Party has indoor and outdoor (weather dependent) components. Particpants are introduced to star gazing by various professionals in the field, including a Sky&Telescope Magazine representative. Galileo, played by Mike Francis, gives the evening a historical spin, then encourages the audience to join the astronomers outside to view the stars with high-powered telescopes.
We need non 4th grade parent and student volunteers to donate time, food, and telescopes. Click here to volunteer.
