Exploring the Universe: Filtered Light @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Join us for this illuminating program at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Saturday, May 25 at 10:30 and 1:30. Discover how colored filters can help reveal more about an image, then make and study colorful images of your own. Learn how scientists can use telescopes and other tools to capture and filter different energies of light to study the universe. Most objects in the universe are so distant from us that we can only study them through light. Filters allow us to block some energy levels of light and isolate others; each energy of light can offer new information about the object of study. Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This program is a special preview of Discovery Space, an exhibit full of out-of-this-world fun, opening June 14!

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
