Description

Physics partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County to procure funding support for a weekly Space Explorers Afterschool program at Lucy Simms Center in downtown Harrisonburg. This provides the Planetarium an opportunity to have members of our community, whom otherwise may not have the opportunity, to visit us. As part of the AREA grant, 10 Boys and Girls Club participants will receive a tuition scholarship to attend the 2017 Space Explorers camp.
