Science Sleepover!

Enjoy a Science Sleepover during Science After Dark

Come to Carnegie Science Center for Science After Dark, and have an Astronomical Adventure! Explore the night sky in the Buhl Planetarium and visit SpacePlace to experience what it would be like to be an astronaut. Design a space rover and then put it to the test. Help a forgetful astronaut find personal belongings in our “Lost in Space” scavenger hunt. You might get to snooze next to R2-D2 or catch some Z’s near a space station. This is one spectacular, starry night!
