Introducing UNC Science Week at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center is proud to introduce UNC Science Week—an entire week to celebrate the amazing and important STEM research that happens right here on campus! Join us from April 12-17 as we host an array of opportunities for scientists and research teams to engage with the public in fun and COVID-safe ways.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

To cap the week off, Morehead will host a Virtual Science Expo on Friday, April 16 followed by Scientist Saturday on April 17 (masked and physically distanced) at our newly renovated building and surrounding grounds.

This event is an official NCSciFest event and will replace the UNC Science Expo in 2021. Learn more NCSciFest here.
