The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) will host a Star Party as part of the 2017 North Carolina Science Festival, a two-week long celebration of the educational, cultural and financial impact of science and technology in North Carolina.

On Saturday, April 22, from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., the public is invited to a Star Party at the GSC, hosted in conjunction with the Greensboro Astronomy Club. Themed on the stories stars tell, the Star Party will give participants the chance to look through telescopes and view the wonders of our universe, discover constellations, learn about the life cycle of stars, and even make their own constellations to take home. Although telescopes will be provided, visitors are encouraged to bring their own binoculars. Admission the Star Party is free to the public. No GSC general admission required. Activities will take place rain or shine.

The 2017 North Carolina Science Festival takes place from April 7-23 and began in 2010. It has significantly grown since then, and has vital impacts on encouraging children to be involved in science-related activities and businesses to invest in science-related fields and careers for economic growth.
