Our facility will be closed on Tuesday, August 29th for a Strategic Planning Meeting for our board and staff.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

October 2017: Weather Satellites

October 1, 2017

|Recurring Event (See all)

goes-r_earthFrom storms to sunshine, heat waves to natural disasters, weather rules our world — and weather satellites help us observe and monitor what’s happening at any moment across Earth’s atmosphere, detecting and observing environmental phenomena that directly affect public safety, health, and property. Throughout October, we’ll be wild about weather and serious about satellites – weather you like it or not, our exhibits this month will blow you away!

  • Check out the “Eyes on the Earth” interactive kiosk in the Immersion Theater to explore how NASA satellites monitor our planet’s vital signs.
  • Step inside a storm cloud and learn about the difference between weather and climate in the “Weathering the Storm” in our Immersion Theater.
  • Learn about satellites flying around Earth and view dynamic satellite imagery on Science on a Sphere.
  • Give a weather report in the Kids’ Climate Cast meteorology TV studio
  • Use what you’ve learned to design your own satellite at our activity table.
  • Plus, interactive exhibits, fall hiking, and more!

We would like to thank ATC and DuPont for supporting our monthly exhibit themes. There is always something new to discover at ALNC!
