The annual IfA Mānoa Open House will take place on Sunday, April 6, from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2680 Woodlawn Drive. Admission and onsite parking will be free.

There will be activities, displays, and talks for people of all ages. For the keiki, we will have bottle-rocket launching, face painting, shows in the StarLab planetarium, and the opportunity to make a glider out of a foam plate, or to make a sundial, comet, or crater.  

Both children and adults will have the opportunity to ask astronomers questions. At the Fun with Physics booth, you can explore the physical laws of spinning objects. In the CAVE, you will have the opportunity to explore a 3-D virtual environment. The Pacific Aviation Museum is bringing its P-40 flight simulator. There will be many other activities and displays. Please join us.
