  • Beginning Telescopes
    June 9, 2023  8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    There is a wide range of telescopes available to let you explore the night sky. They vary in size, weight, price and complexity. Kopernik Astronomical Society member Art Cacciola will discuss the different types of telescopes and what objects are best viewed through them. If you have a telescope, bring it to Kopernik, no matter what condition it is in, and receive a lesson on assembling and using it from a member of the Kopernik Astronomical Society.

  • KKids - Life at the Pond
    June 17, 2023  10:30 am - 12:00 pm
    Kopernik Observatory & Science Center, 698 Underwood Rd, Vestal, NY 13850, USA

    Join us for the KoperniKids program, a kid-friendly approach to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)exploration designed especially for children 3 to 6 years old. Each session will offer fun, hands-on learning with a different set of activities, experiments, and songs that will encourage your child to participate in the wonderful world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Parent/Caregiver stays with a child during the class. 

    Ponds are very common in our area. This session will allow you and your child to discover what lives near, around, and in the pond. We will use microscopes to take a closer look at the small microscopic creatures that live in the water in ponds. We will learn about the life cycle of frogs and some interesting facts about fish.
