In Acton and neighboring Boxboro, Astronomy is introduced at the 5th Grade level. The Acton Star Party is designed specifically for these young minds. Telescopes or binoculars are outside looking at all the different celestial "sky-lites". Inside, many activities are planned to help bring the outdoor science within easy reach. Close to 400 students and their parents (750+ participants in all) will be attending! It should prove to be quite a party.
