Chabot Space and Science Center Wants to Hear What You Think ~ About a Fantastic Upcoming Exhibition

SPACETIME will be a 25,000 sq foot, multi-level playground located in the outdoor courtyard at Chabot Space & Science Center. The space will be a one-of-a-kind experience, appearing in multiple iterations, accompanied by a narrative that unfolds over time via various local and international media. It will engage kids age 6-12 in active, imaginative play; spark excitement and interest in space exploration; and evoke the spirit of wonder at discovering worlds unknown.

Chabot is seeking families to volunteer an hour of their time to help us determine what you, our communities, would like to see in this new exhibition. We invite you to join us for an hour-long session on Saturday June 1, 2013, at either 2pm or 4pm. There will be an engaging conversation for adults, while our experienced educators entertain the kids with fun, related activities (plus, there will be thank you gifts!). We will be video-taping the sessions.

To sign up (registration ends May 29), contact Camie Bontaites, Creative Content Producer,

Chabot Space & Science Center: 510-336-7312 or cbontaites@chabotspace.org. ChabotST image barnacles (2)
