Longway Planetarium

Watch the Daily Dose of Science!

Science activities you can do at home!

Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium’s educators and planetarium presenters are developing short, educational videos to inspire at-home learning while schools are closed. We’ll show you fun science activities you can do with common household items, and stargazing tips using the night sky renderings you’d normally see in the planetarium.
