Dear CORE families,
Join us on Monday, May 14th for an evening of food, fun, and a live tour of the night sky as CORE Charter School hosts the second annual Star-B-Q event. Experience the wonder and awe of looking through our 8" reflecting telescopes and seeing with your very own eyes the light emitted by a distant galaxy over 35 million lightyears away. View a globular star cluster over 25,000 lightyears away. See Jupiter and its four largest moons in real life - a mere half billion miles away.
Feel free to bring blankets to lie down on so you have a comfortable view of the stars above. At about , Mr. Gibbs will be giving a guided star talk followed by views through our telescopes which will be operated by CORE students. Please bring a red flashlight if you have one, we want to try and minimize white light after dark.
Also, Ms. Flinn will host a 3-d flexagon craft table. Come and construct your own geometric transformers to take home and show off to your friends and family.
Doors open at CORE will provide BBQ burgers. Please bring a side dish to share with everyone. The event is designed for middle to high school students. Younger children are welcome so long as they are supervised. Please take a moment to complete the google doc below.
Hope to see you there and... keep looking up!
(In the event of cloudy skies, we will host the BBQ and craft portion only. Plan to come and enjoy.)
