Sensory-Friendly Astronomy and Music Show Set at RVCC Planetarium

The Sky Above

WHEN: Saturdays, March 7 and April 4, at 5 p.m.
WHERE:
RVCC, 118 Lamington Rd., Branchburg
ADMISSION: $10 per person. Seating is limited and reservations are strongly suggested. For additional information and to make reservations, call 908-231-8805 or visit www.raritanval.edu/planetarium.

The sensory-friendly astronomy and music show, approximately 45 minutes in length, is specially designed for families with children on the Autism spectrum or those with developmental disabilities. Neurotypical children are welcome as well.

The program, which is presented on a kindergarten level, is appropriate for audiences of all ages. We provide a comfortable and judgment-free space that is welcoming to everyone.

During the show, the doors will remain open so children may freely leave and return if they choose. Lights will be left dim (instead of dark) and the audio will be lowered and kept at a consistent level.

The show will include music, laser lights, stories, and information about the planets, the Moon and constellations. All material will be presented on a very basic level.
