January 21: Have You Seen the Moon?
What is the moon composed of and why doesn't it always look the same? Join CNSE CMOST as we explore the answers to these questions and more! We will examine moon sand, make a moon rock and create a moon to take home.

January 28: Are the Stars Out Tonight?
What do you see when you look up at the night sky? Can you recognize the patterns of the stars? In this intro to astronomy class participants will create their own constellations, learn about stars and more as they head off into the cosmos.
