On 2nd July we had the Winterstellar Schools Day at the Community Centre and Central Stories Museum & Art Gallery in Alexandra.
The event was organised by Central Otago REAP and Otago Museum Science Outreach team. Over 350 pupils from Central Otago schools took part in the Schools Day events, some from as far afield as Hawea, Poolburn and Tarras.
After their adventures in the Otago Museum Star Dome and science experiments, they walked over to the Central Stories Museum & Art Gallery to get a sneak of the Winterstellar Exhibition before the opening that evening.
There was lots of fun and science for the hundreds of Central Otago school children involved. Schools taking part included:
- Alexandra Primary
- Omakau Primary
- Poolburn School
- Tarras School
- Hawea Flat School
- The Terrace School
