“Growing up Great Together under One Big Sky”

Posted: Thursday, April 13, 2017

PNC Bank of Huntington and Pathfinder Kids Kampus child care center have partnered for “Growing up Great Together under One Big Sky” planetarium day which recently took place at Pathfinder Kids Kampus.

PNC’s “Growing up Great Together under One Big Sky” mobile planetarium tour features an inflatable dome where children ages three to five view the show, One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure. The children of Pathfinder Kids Kampus learned the basic principles of astronomy and also about other cultures as they witnessed shooting stars and used their imaginations to visit the moon. At the end of the show each child received a trilingual “One World, One Sky” day time/night time poster with tips on finding stars. Each show at the planetarium was 20 minutes long and the program provided an enriching, exciting and interactive introduction to astronomy and other sciences through Sesame Street characters including Big Bird, Elmo and others.

“The planetarium tour is an interactive opportunity for the children of Pathfinder Kids Kampus to experience a planetarium, and allows for our teachers to share astronomy based curriculum with our preschool age children,” stated Loretta Mottram, senior director of business development at Pathfinder Services. “We are extremely thankful to PNC bank who allowed the children to experience a planetarium right here at Pathfinder Kids Kampus,” Mottram concluded.
