Meet us at the ISU Planetarium to experience a free planetarium show! The Little Star That Could is the story of an average yellow star searching for planets of his own. Along his way, Little Star encounters other stars, learns what makes each star special, and discovers that stars can combine to form clusters and galaxies. Everyone will learn basic information about the planets and our solar system!

This activity is best for families with pre-school to elementary-aged children. 

Registration is required for this activity and space is limited. Registration begins June 19 at 9 am. Each person (kids and adults) who will be in attendance will need to register.
