For Families

Family ASTRO:

Family ASTRO is a program at the non-profit Astronomical Society of the Pacific to help families enjoy astronomy and hands-on science together. The heart of the project is a series of new astronomy kits designed to be both educational and fun for children ages 8 and up (and for adults who work and play with them.)

Public Programs at the Kitt Peak Visitor Center:

A number of programs for families are offered by the Kitt Peak Visitor Center on an ongoing basis. Check out the Public Programs page to see what is happening this month.
