RMSC Hosts ‘Curiosity Campout @ Strasenburgh Planetarium’ for Families to Test Out Summer Curiosity Camp

    WHAT: The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) is hosting two Curiosity Campouts @ the Strasenburgh Planetarium on January 8 and February 5 with the theme of Sky Sights. 

    During these mornings of hands-on science fun, families will explore the science behind meteor showers, the moon and its phases, and other celestial phenomena through hands-on activities and experiments. This event also includes admission to the Planetarium Show I See the Sky, as well as other activities that will help budding astronauts and their families launch deeper into outer space exploration. 

    On January 8, families are invited to work together to take over “Mission Control” and oversee a rocket zipline. 

    On February 5, families can let their creative side free as they make art inspired by auroras and curate a “Moon Museum.” 

    For those interested in RMSC’s Curiosity Camps, this event provides an opportunity to become familiar with the RMSC campus, meet the educators who lead camps, and see what types of activities are offered.

    Visit for more information and to register.


    Saturday, January 8, and Saturday, February 5, from 9-11:30am.


    This pre-registered event is designed for children and caregivers to enjoy together. 

    Activities will be designed for kids between the ages 2-5, but all are welcome.
