Frost Science Upcoming Events January 2022

January 4 – January 27, 2022 –  Afterschool: Astronomy

Enrich your school curriculum through Frost Science’s new four-week long afterschool science session, designed for children ages 5-9. ​​Each afterschool session is four-weeks in duration with lessons occurring on Tuesdays and Thursdays. During January’s Afterschool session, students will study planetary rotation then go on an interstellar adventure to an exoplanet of their own creation. Budding engineers can shoot for the stars as they build and test stomp rockets and tackle a moon lander engineering design challenge. This month of space exploration culminates with a visit to Frost Science Planetarium for an immersive look at the cosmos.

January 12, 2022 – LIVE@Frost Science: Astrophysicist Paul Sutter

A new series of LIVE@Frost Science, the museum’s popular speaker series, begins on Wednesday, January 12, with astrophysicist and author Paul M. Sutter who will present his new book How to Die in Space. Sutter will take guests on a unique audience-directed journey through our dangerous cosmos throughout the evening in the Frost Planetarium. Admission is complimentary however, registration is required. 

January 14, 2022 – Laser Evenings

Frost Science’s crowd-favorite Laser Evening shows are back. Taking place once a month starting in January, Miami locals and visitors alike will once again rock out with a retro throwback to the classic laser light spectacles they have come to know and love, all under the Frost Planetarium’s 67-foot dome. On Friday, January 14, the evening’s lineup includes Symphony of the Stars, a family-friendly show at 7 p.m., followed by The Best of the Beatles (8 p.m.), Pink Floyd (9 p.m.), David Bowie (10 p.m.) and Queen (11 p.m.). Laser shows rotate throughout the year, as each event has a different lineup. Each Laser Evening show must be purchased separately.

 

January 21, 2022 – Mini Camp: Science on the Move

Frost Science’s dynamic Mini-Camps are the perfect action-packed solution to a Teacher Planning Day. Kids (Grades Pre-K to 5) will spend the day exploring the museum’s interactive exhibitions, conducting science experiments, and making new friends. During Mini-Camp: Science on the Move, campers will explore the six types of simple machines, then use wheels and axels to build and race their own clothespin car. Then, they’ll apply their machine mastery to their own body as you make a pulley model of the human arm. It’s not a flex, just the basic principles of engineering.
