In Louisville, Kentucky, the Science Center will be hosting a special event in honor of the upcoming solar eclipse on April 8 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. This event is open to the public and will feature a range of activities that are free with admission.

The Kentucky Science Center will offer visitors a chance to explore its 50,000 square feet of exhibits and participate in educational programming throughout the galleries. These activities will focus on various aspects of the eclipse, such as safety guidelines for viewing, cultural interpretations, and scientific principles behind the phenomenon.

One of the highlights of the event is a limited distribution of free eclipse glasses for attendees to view the partial eclipse safely. Guests can also enjoy making pinhole cameras or streaming live coverage from NASA during the event. Additionally, they can opt to watch documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D in the center’s four-story theater, which explores NASA’s space exploration programs and telescopes.

Mike Norman, CEO of Kentucky Science Center expressed his excitement about this special event and how it aligns with their mission to engage with guests about science education and exploration opportunities. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W Main Street and is open seven days a week from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
