About the program:
Morehead Planetarium and Science Center is pleased to offer astronomy programming designed to help scout groups with badgework and other goals.

Designed for scouts ages 6-9, this program will help scouts learn about our Solar System. Scouts will “travel” through space and into our Milky Way galaxy in the simulated sky of the planetarium, locate and identify celestial bodies with telescopes, learn all about why years and days are different lengths on different planets, and the different types of eclipses that happen on Earth and the Moon.
