'Imiloa Turns 10!

Posted February 12, 2016 | Categories: Announcement

On Sunday, February 21, ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center turns ten years old!  To mark this milestone, ‘Imiloa will open its doors free to the public with a festive 10th Anniversary Celebration sponsored by KTA Super Stores.  The event will feature food, fun, and free activities for all ages centered around the theme of exploration or “’imiloa” in Hawaiian.

‘Imiloa’s 10th Anniversary Celebration starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. The day’s offerings include complimentary access to ‘Imiloa’s interactive exhibit hall, where visitors can step inside and pilot their own tour of the universe on the newly installed World Wide Telescope.  Special programming for the day includes 20-minute planetarium experiences and an opportunity to meet crew members from the ‘Ohana Wa’a and the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage.  Hands-on science activity stations will be located throughout the center, including an “Inven10 Lab” where keiki will be invited to create their own Cosmic Clay and mold it to invent their own dream exhibit, to help guide ʻImiloaʻs future exhibit redesign as it steps into the next decade!
