Under The Stars (2020)
28 March 2020


This fun daytime event with astrophysicist Lisa Harvey-Smith transports curious kids and inquisitive adults on an incredible journey through the atmosphere and rockets them into the night sky.

In this show, explore our solar system, find out why the sky is blue, understand how rainbows are made and discover the link between shooting stars and astronaut poo!

When Lisa Harvey-Smith isn’t looking skyward, she is answering the smart questions of school kids. Her engaging storytelling in her children’s book “Under the Stars: Astrophysics for Bedtime” brings the night sky to life, giving amazing new perspectives to young explorers who are always asking, ‘Why?’
