UW-Stevens Point is offering a Junior Scientist program to help kids learn about the secrets of the natural world and the universe around it.
The Junior Scientist program is co-sponsored by UWSP’s Museum of Natural History and Allen F. Blocher Planetarium. A variety of events and programs will be offered through May for youth ages 2 and up.
Children who attend any 10, or more, of these events, will earn full Junior Scientist status. A ceremony and party will be held next spring, and those who qualify will have their photo put on the museum’s Wall of Juniors.
Registration is free and may be done at any of the events, including:
· Junior Scientist planetarium shows – offered once a month on a Sunday from 3:30-4 p.m.
