Introductory Astronomy for Kids - Galaxies

Join us at the planetarium for a show especially geared towards a younger audience (around 8-15years old) and their family members. You've seen the Sun and the Moon, the planets, and the Hamilton night sky, but what's beyond the Solar System? In this show, we'll journey through the Milky Way and discuss our Solar System's place in the Galaxy and our Galaxy's place in the Universe. How long will it take to get to the nearest star and visit other worlds? What's in the center of our Galaxy? How does our Galaxy compare to others? We'll answer all these questions and more!

When 5:45 and 7 pm showtimes

Where:W.J McCallion Planetarium, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON

Stories of the More-than-human World

This open public forum builds off of an earlier CCENA panel at which presenter, Dr. Bonnie Freeman (Hodinohso:ni/Algonquin), urged us to think beyond people-narratives, to think instead of stories and narratives of the land. The focus of this discussion will be land as teacher, land as pedagogy.

When: 3 - 5 pm

Where: McMaster University Centre for Continuing Education, 1 James Street North, Hamilton, ON
