Countdown to Noon

December 31, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Countdown to noon (2)

Can’t stay up ’til midnight on New Year’s Eve? You can still put on your dancing shoes and party during the day at Eugene Science Center! Join us for a family-friendly celebration of another orbit around the Sun.


  • Count down to blast-off of our 2 ft tall scaled-to-size Apollo Little Joe II Rocket with an E30-4 composite fuel engine (modeled after the NASA spacecraft active in 1963-66).  Launching at Noon (dependent upon weather conditions).
  • Laser Dance Party in the Planetarium following the rocket launch
  • Hands-on activities about the science of fireworks
  • Be sure to check out our schedule of laser light shows running all day as well! (Additional charges apply.)
