What does light have to do with the study of space? Everything! Examine the behavior of light to find out how we learn about objects that are too far away to visit. Then, see what light can show us about the sun, moon, planets and other stars. The program, developed with support by NASA, offers an out-of-this-world learning experience.     
The Franklin Institute brings its signature brand of science to the community with hands-on science activities for kids, as well as engaging activities designed specifically with elementary and middle school kids in mind. These traveling science assemblies provide fun experiments for kids, complete with interactive learning that creates infectious enthusiasm, spilling over into the classroom.
For our patrons with special needs, the Stockton Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair accessible seating, large type programs, and listening assistive devices.  Please identify any needs you may have when making a reservation.
The Stockton Performing Arts Center, the Jersey Shore’s Center for the Arts, is located on the campus of Stockton University, on Jimmie Leeds Road in Galloway Township.  Just 12 miles west of Atlantic City, the center is easily accessible from the Garden State Parkway and the Atlantic City Expressway. 
This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
