Family Nights


Once a month during the school year the WVHS Planetarium invites the community to Family Nights. These educational & entertaining programs are created for everyone (not just families) with the science content geared towards elementary grade levels. Everyone enjoys seeing the nights sky, so all ages are welcome. Programs are approximately 30 minutes in length with new topics each month.
