Students are given the opportunity to learn about the tools astronomers use to explore the universe and examine the subject of light and how telescopes are designed to collect and magnify it.
Daytime School Programs
The program level can range from 3rd to 12th grade, and can accommodate up to 20 people.
Daytime school programs occur rain or shine; if the weather permits, students look through the telescope to safely view the Sun. Programs are 40 minutes long. Please call Reservations, 410-545-5929, at least three weeks ahead of time to make arrangements. Admission is $5.00 per person.

Programs are 2 hours long. Please contact the Observatory Coordinator at least two weeks ahead of time to make arrangements. Admission is $10.00 per person.
