We have events throughout the weekend for everyone! From family-friendly events at Campus Saint-Jean and Augustana to a virtual Meet the Author, there's something to suit everyone's interests.

Explore the wonders of outer space through interactive demonstrations, awe-inspiring art installations and captivating speakers! Join us for an immersive experience featuring planetary scientist Dr. Chris Herd, a performance from i Coristi Chamber Choir, a Mars-style rover and so much more.

Start your evening with an exploration of space — past, present and future. Hear from Dr. Robert Smith on the histories of the Hubble and James Webb Telescopes, Dr. Chris Herd on what we can learn from rocks brought back from Mars, and aspiring astronaut Aleeza Batool. Discover space-related research happening across campus, get up close to a rocket, navigate a rover, explore the meteorite collection and sample astronaut treats. Visit our Mars outpost for a chance to touch some authentic space rocks too!
