Children learn about space at the UH astronomy open house

It was a fun day for kids, learning about space and watching things go ka-boom!

Kids got to see how a comet works plus play with bottle rockets and look through telescopes and do all sort of fun science activities.

All part of the UH Institute for Astronomy’s open house.

“We do have kids that go through our education program,” said Roy Gal, UH Institute for Astronomy. “Some of whom have come to our back to the university to the physics, computer program and our upcoming astronomy program.”

“They allow a lot of creativity and hands on stuff,” said 12 year-old Jackson Murphy. “Have the comet explode.”

“It like went boom all over the place,” said 9 year-old Henry Trowbridge.

And some kids really got into it like this little guy.
