The Roper Mountain Star
A Quarterly Newsletter for Members
Don’t let winter keep you inside! Come out and enjoy your member benefits at Roper Mountain Science Center’s upcoming events.  First, we’ll kick off two months of Second Saturdays starting February 11th with STEMfest and followed by Space Day on March 11th.  Also in February, make sure to utilize your 3-day priority registration for our Summer Exploration Camps. Then in March, celebrate the return of Friday Starry Nights with the much anticipated re-opening of the T.C. Hooper Planetarium. Join us for a special members’ preview night before the regular shows resume. Your membership gives you access to all of these great programs and more.
