Meadville Elementary School

Funding from the Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation provides an opportunity for these kindergarten through third grade students at Meadville Elementary School to venture into space inside a portable planetarium provided by the Moorehead Planetarium and Science Center from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During the travel into space, students meet an astronomer and an astronaut. They learn about Earth, sun, moon, stars, planets, ecosystems and force and motion inside the dome structure as Nick Eakes from the Moorehead Planetarium at Chapel Hill facilitates the show.
