Mobile Observatory Ribbon Cutting

Mobile observatory ribbon cutting

Our Mobile Observatory is officially open! At the Mission Viejo public library, and accompanied by speeches from mayor Wendy Bucknam, Science Heads Executive Director, Richard Stember, and other local dignitaries, Science Heads cut a ceremonial ribbon for the MOBS.

See the coverage from the Orange County Register.

Our celebration event featured science-themed stations demonstrating photosensitivity via make-your-own sun prints, leverage, rapid oxidation (burning) of steel, safe sun viewing, geometric patterns, blood composition, and jet propulsion.
