The Weis Earth Science Museum and the Barlow Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley are again offering their popular week-long summer programs in geology and space science. Beginning and advanced classes are available for students entering grades four through seven.

At the Barlow Planetarium, participants in Wisconsin Space Academy will be learning about astronomy, building their own rockets and designing a planetarium show.

Earth Explorers in Wisconsin Earth Adventure at the Weis Museum will be actively involved in building an erupting volcano, growing crystals, making an ice cream glacier and much more. Earth Investigators in the advanced level course will make maps, study meteorites, discover dinosaurs, and much more.

Programs for both the Weis and the Barlow are offered in June and July, with sessions available in the morning and in the afternoon. Options are available for a full-day - morning and afternoon - of supervised activity.

The Weis Earth Science Museum, Wisconsin’s Official Mineralogical Museum, and the Barlow Planetarium, one of the nation’s finest planetarium facilities, are conveniently located inside the UWFox campus in Menasha.

Each half-day program costs $125 per child, with a discount for siblings or for children who are enrolled in more than one program. Please contact 920-832-2848 or visit www.weismuseum.org or www.barlowplanetarium.org for dates and other information and for registration materials.
