On Friday, May 8 grab your friends or your date and enjoy a geeky night out at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium. Enjoy drinks, a classic science fiction movie and live star show exploring two of our Solar systems dwarf planets, Pluto and Ceres. In 2006 Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet much to the dismay of many, but this reclassification can provide a platform for us to better understand the true nature of our Solar system. In July of this year the NASA spacecraft New Horizons will flyby Pluto and provide a much sharper glimpse of this small, icy world. We will also take a look at the dwarf planet Ceres, located in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, which is now being visited by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft. Your admission to Nova Nights includes: A special presentation of the Live Sky Tonight exploring the dwarf planets Pluto and Ceres.

The Saint Louis Science Center is continuing its successful partnership with Tau Beta Pi- a national Engineering Honors Society to provide STEM Engineering based programs for children grades 3-6. MindSET is a national initiative led by Tau Beta Pi to help K-12 students get interested in STEM careers by organizing a variety of programs that are both fun and educational. At each session, MindSET attendees will learn how engineers use their knowledge of Newton’s Laws, gravity, and strength of materials to create optimal projectile motion and structural design. After covering the engineering design process, attendees will use this knowledge to compete in a design challenge combing both catapults and towers of their own creation. Cost: $5 per person RSVP Required: to reserve your spot contact Pbraasch@slsc.org
