Are you ready to take your group on an adventure that’s out of this world?

Look no further than our exciting Odyssey Overnight program. Through hands -on science workshops, planetarium shows, exhibit exploration and telescope viewing, your group will have the opportunity to expand their STEM knowledge of space and astronomy.
