Women in STEAM


Celebrate Women’s History Month with us! We will be celebrating women’s accomplishments and contributions to science and inventions throughout history! Included are women of different ethnicities, backgrounds, countries of origin and fields of study. Activities will be related to these women and their historic influences.

Pop Up Planetarium

Star gazers, future astronomers and astronauts, and night owls alike, the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum is coming back to Blandy with their portable, Star Lab pop-up planetarium!
Inside the planetarium we’ll view the night sky, learning about the constellation stories and mythology of many different cultures.
After enjoying the show inside, we’ll head outside to look at the moon and starts through telescopes and keep our hands warm with mugs of hot chocolate.

For all starry eyed ages six and up.
Presented in partnership with the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum.

Astronomy Night

It’s sure to be a stellar night at the Discovery Museum!

Learn about constellations, planets, and telescopes from the Shenandoah Valley Astronomical Society and view the heavens from the Sky Level. We will also create a starry craft, engineer a moon lander, dodge asteroids, and hear an out-of-this-world tale.
