WPSU Penn State’s Cosmic Carnival will take place from 1-4 p.m. at the WPSU studios at 100 Innovation Boulevard at Innovation Park. The carnival will include 23 family-friendly activities, and kids will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet retired astronaut James Pawelczyk
  • Interact with a StarLab Dome planetarium
  • Meet PBS Kids’ Cat in the Hat and Jet Propulsion
  • Make an astronomical star globe
  • Create an eerie extraterrestrial headpiece
  • Pick an earth pumpkin from the planetary patch

The first 500 children ages 9 and younger will receive a treat bag that includes a free PBS Kids book, a Dairy Queen coupon and various WPSU and sponsor items. Families are encouraged to bring food donations that will be shared with area food banks. Cat food and canned dog food will also be accepted.
