Understanding the Universe
Thanks to generous grant support from the North Carolina Space Grant, the 2022 North Carolina Science Festival will again feature the Statewide Star Party as a signature initiative.
During this tenth annual Statewide Star Party, 35 hosts will offer public skywatching events across North Carolina on Friday, April 8, and Saturday, April 9, 2022. Star Party hosts include state and local parks, colleges and universities, planetariums, science centers, nature centers, and libraries. About 3,500 visitors are expected to participate.
This year’s Star Party theme is “Understanding the Universe,” with a focus on science and engineering related to NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Hosts are provided with a Star Party kit of hands-on activities and NASA resources on this theme.
