Official Newsletter - January 2019


January 2019


Greetings and Happy 2019!
 
It's hard to believe we're already into the new year. We had a wonderful holiday season, with the return of planetarium favorites: Mystery of the Christmas Star, and Season of Light. Last month we also had our special Laser Holidays show, which was a big hit!

With the new year, there are plenty of new things happening at the Planetarium and 
Science Center, and January promises to be a big month with events happening every week.

Beginning January 8th, we will premiere our new show "National Geographic Presents: Robots." This show, designed for audiences of all ages, showcases the latest developments-the successes and failures-of robotics around the world. We are also introducing a new live presentation show to our planetarium lineup. "Journey Through Space- LIVE" takes you on an exciting trip through our solar system, to the edges of our galaxy and beyond. Since this is an interactive show, you get to decide what you will visit, and no two shows will be exactly the same. 

That's not all! We will have a "Family Saturday" on January 12, a total lunar eclipse watch party on January 20, and a Science Day Open House on January 26 with performances from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science! 

Be sure to read through the newsletter to find out more details on all these exciting events. There are so many reasons to visit us this month, and we hope to see you soon!

Holiday Shows at the TJC Science Center!

Official Newsletter - October-December 2018


October- December 2018


Greetings!
 
It's hard to believe we're already into fall, and with it the soon-to-be holiday season.

There's plenty of things happening at the Planetarium and Science Center. This month, we were honored to welcome engineer and former NASA Astronaut, Jose M. Hernandez.  In addition, we had one of the largest turn outs for our monthly star parties. Thank you to every one who came out that night to view Mars, Saturn, and the Andromeda Galaxy. Our next star party will be November 3, from 8-10pm. Be sure to come out to this free event that is perfect for the whole family!

We recently premiered the brand new show, Mars: 1001, which some long-time visitors have called their "favorite planetarium movie." In addition, we have our exciting new hands-on exhibit, Sportsology, where visitors can learn the science behind popular sports while testing their strength, reaction times, flexibility, and endurance. Also, back by popular request, we have started $1 Tuesdays again. So for just $1 per person per show on Tuesdays, you can check out our new planetarium lineup and exhibit!   

That's not all! Beginning in November, we will have a rotation of holiday-themed planetarium shows, such as The Mystery of the Christmas Star, Season of Light, and Let It Snow.  We will also have a laser show set to classic and modern Christmas Carols from Dec 10-21. 

There are so many reasons to visit us this holiday season, and we hope to see you soon!

East Texas Live Sky, "Spooky Space" 

Every day at 3pm for the month of October our East Texas Live Sky shows will feature "Spooky Space." In addition to learning about what can be seen in the sky that night, there will be a presentation about other "spooky" objects such as the Cat's Eye, the Little Ghost, and the Witch Head nebulas.  


Also be sure to check out our Halloween themed "Pumpkin Solar System!" 
Oh the weather outside is frightful, 
but the planetarium is so delightful! 

The holiday season is nearly upon us. Beginning Nov 1, we will be adding Season of Light to our planetarium lineup.

Beginning Nov. 23, we will also add our popular Christmas-themed shows: The Mystery of the Christmas Star, and Let It Snow.

From Dec. 10-21 we will have special presentations of Laser Holidays, a laser show set to popular Christmas carols. Our Rock and Roll Saturday on Dec 15 will also be a special "Holiday Edition."

Come celebrate the holidays with the Center for Earth and Space Science Education!

Official Newsletter - Aug & Sept 2018


August-September 2018
Greetings!
 
I am thrilled to join TJC as the new director of the Center for Earth & Space Science Education. I come from a long background of science education, with 4 years experience as a high school science teacher, and 6 years working with science museums and planetariums such as the Perot Museum and the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, TX. I also recently earned my Ph.D. in Science Education from Texas Christian University. My personal philosophy and passion has been to pursue 'life-long learning in an ever-expanding universe of endless possibilities,' and in my new role I hope to maximize the center's potential to inspire the East Texas community to develop a similar desire to learn more about the wonders of the world that surrounds them.

We've had a great summer with shows like Extreme Weather, Dream Big, and Moons: Worlds of Mystery, along with our exhibit Roll Drop Bounce. As we move in to the fall there are a lot of exciting new things planned for the planetarium and science center at TJC, so I hope you will come by and check it out!
