One with the Force are you? Join us for this all-ages dress up sci-fi adventure where Professor Jay Dunn leads a discussion on the worlds and aliens of the Star Wars films and compares them with the planets and life in our solar system as well as extra-solar planets. Along the way, we'll enjoy video clips inspired by Star Wars and other sci-fi favorites. Young Jedi and Padawan alike are encouraged to attend in their favorite sci-fi attire.
