Star Wars Day

May 4, 2014


“May the Fourth Be with You!” 

Visitors from a galaxy far, far away are landing at Space Center Houston for an “other-worldly” celebration on Sunday, “May the Fourth.”  Explore the fascinating parallels of real space science and the science of Star Wars with a cast of characters straight from the silver screen. Enjoy physics activities throughout the day as you build your own “balloon-saber,” craft LED creations and feel the “force” of magnetism. Top off the day with an indoor laser light show and special performances.  All included with the price of admission!
