Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach
Curious older kids and teens can attend free public lectures, followed by a full 90 minutes of rooftop stargazing, hosted by this branch of Columbia University's astronomy department. Past Friday-night sessions have included "How Big Is the Solar System?", "How Is a Hubble Image Made?" and "Where the Ocean Meets the Sky."
For younger children, ages 6 to 12, there's the Family Astro session, held three times a year. Among the themes are solar eclipses, meteors and comets. Check outreach.astro.columbia.edu regularly for the most up-to-date event information.
