Seeing Stars with the Fred Rogers Scholars

Posted by Maura Snyder on Fri, Dec 4, 2015 @ 09:12 AM

Hi Neighbors!

Adam and Maura here! We both are junior Fred Rogers Scholars here at Saint Vincent. Adam is a history secondary education major. Maura is a psychology major with a minor in children’s studies. Both of us have worked closely with the Fred Rogers Scholars for the past 2.5 years, and one of our favorite projects is the monthly Sky Above Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood planetarium show.

On Saturday, Nov. 21, we welcomed our first group of families for the year. Each month we provide a variety of crafts and activities for the families to enjoy after the 20-minute show. Our activities include fishing for stars, making Daniel Tiger masks and puppets, making your own paper moon like Lady Elaine in the show and a variety of other fun activities. We also have our very own wooden trolley photo booth! See below some photos of our activities.

We hope to see you at the next show on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 12:30 p.m. in the Dupre Science Pavilion.

We hope it's a beautiful day in your neighborhood!
