Morehead Planetarium plans teen science cafe Friday night

Posted January 9, 2014

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center in Chapel Hill will host a teen science cafe on Friday. 

The topic for this regular series for teens ages 13 to 18 is how inequality affects people's thinking and behavior. Dr. Keith Payne from UNC will talk about new scientific research on inequality and its effect on people's lives. Pizza is served at 5:30 p.m. The program starts at 6 p.m. It's free. No registration is required. The next cafe is Feb. 14.

Also, in Morehead's monthly newsletter, there was mention of a NASA contest for high school students. The contest asks high school students to create videos about science for young children. Winners will have their videos posted on NASA's website and work with NASA producers this summer to make an earth science feature video, according to Morehead. Click here for more about the contest.

    When they got rid of the Zeiss Star Gazer that the astronauts trained under, I lost interest in this place….Black eye for GSK for getting suckered into spending millions on a high definition projector instead of something that can produce an accurate representation of the night sky. They still sell and make Zeiss Star Gazers.
