AstroDay is Approaching, But With a Twist This Year For The Keiki

10:06 PM · Apr 23, 2021

The annual AstroDay event is quickly approaching. This year the event is going to be a "hybrid" celebration that includes AstroDay kits for Keiki to take home. “We’re thrilled to bring back AstroDay in person in some way, and believe the hybrid nature of this year’s event keeps the spirit of astronomy alive in a way that is safe and fun for everyone,” said Carolyn Kaichi, event coordinator, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Institute for Astronomy (IfA). Families can visit stores with AstroDay posters to receive the kits. No purchase is required. AstroDay kits will be available from Friday, April 30 through Sunday, May 2 at Prince Kūhiō Plaza in Hilo. On April 30, winners from the AstroDay Coin Contest, a student design competition launched earlier in the year, will be announced online. Two special drawings will also be held during the “Ask an Astronomer” segment on the KWXX morning show on April 30 and May 2. Jennifer van Saders, an assistant astronomy professor at IfA, will answer questions from the public that can be texted to KWXX during the last week in April.
