Looking for something fun and educational for your kids? While New York City is in the process of re-opening, we’re starting to offer classes about minerals, fossils, and meteorites – particularly how they are formed and how they are mined/found. The class is 75 minutes long, with a one hour lecture and 15 minutes for every kid in attendance to crack a geode. This class is designed for children between the ages of 5 and 15 – anyone under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Cost: $40 per child, which includes cracking a geode to bring home (which is normally $25)
Please note: the class must have a minimum of two children to form, so look at the calendar below and select a class that has less than “7 available” (each class can accommodate 7 children and their parents). If for any reason a class must be cancelled, we can refund you or sign you up for the next available class that works with your schedule. Please understand that although this is an educational experience, Astro West is not a museum so please watch your children carefully so as to avoid any damage to our valuable specimens.
