Space Day was a huge success, since I know you were wondering. My co-President and I were pretty worried about it because Wednesday happened to be the first beautiful day of the year, so we didn’t really know what was going to happen with the inflatable-albeit-indoor planetarium.
Turns out, thanks to some stellar advertising, our attendance was great – about 30 kids for each of the shows. Which turned out to be perfect, because it meant that the thing wasn’t too crowded and we didn’t have to turn anyone away (the biggest relief.) Here’s some of the ad stuff I did:
So that moon is the back of the invitation-style thing, and that’s a picture of how I stuck them into the study cubbies in Miller Library. All 200-ish of them. By myself. Anyway, it got the results that I wanted: great attendance for the planetarium (barely any people that I had even met before – a great indicator,) a superb showing for the rocket launches, and we even tacked on an observation night at the last minute that was probably the most populated out of any of the ones we’ve had this school year. And I gave away like 150 Space Club stickers. Hopefully, we made a big enough splash with the club this year that it’ll be part of the Colby scene for a long time coming.
