'Discover Space' exhibition announced

Anythink announces that Friday, Jan. 29-Monday, March 14, Anythink Huron Street will host Discover Space: A Cosmic Journey, an interactive exhibition produced by the Space Science Institute. Discover Space is an opportunity for community members of all ages to explore the cosmos from space storms to asteroids and the universe beyond. On Friday, Feb. 5, Anythink Huron Street will celebrate this unique exhibition with an opening reception from 5-7 pm, free and open to the public.

“The Discover Space exhibition takes visitors on an exciting cosmic journey from planet Earth, through the Solar System and into the universe beyond,” says Paul B. Dusenbery, director of the Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning. “Lots of fun and hands-on activities will inspire both young and old alike.”

Discover Space is presented in conjunction with Anythink’s upcoming Space Month, a district-wide celebration of all things space. Throughout the month of March, customers will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of space-related programs, crafts and special events. More detailed information on Space Month is forthcoming.

“We’re excited to host Discover Space and share this exhibition with our community,” says Anythink Huron Street manager Sandra Sebbas. “It provides great opportunities for kids, adults and families to be inspired by space science.”

The Space Science Institute is a Boulder-based nonprofit that creates new and far-reaching models for earth and space science research and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education. Discover Space is funded by the National Science Foundation and will travel to libraries across the country.
