Lycoming College will be holding an open house in the Lynn Science Center on Feb. 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. as one of Williamsport’s First Friday events. The public is welcome to attend this free event to enjoy exhibits and planetarium shows at 6:30 and 7 p.m.

The new Detwiler planetarium has the most advanced projection technology from Spitz Inc., the world’s leader in full-dome education. Visitors will be able to explore the boundaries of the universe and the depths of the earth in stunning high definition detail.

Throughout the evening, students will staff a number of science-related exhibits including research performed on local waterways and a video about students’ shark dive this past summer, both sponsored by Lycoming’s Clean Water Institute. Students also will demonstrate the capabilities of the new physics labs, present a microbiology show, explain how solar panels power equipment in three labs, and identify aquatic insects and fish in the college’s saltwater aquarium.

Admissions staff will be available to share information about preparing for college admissions, financial aid, scholarships and the Lycoming campus.

Light refreshments will be served. No registration required.
