Also, people will walk around there in Star Trek costumes (and you can too, if you have one) and the entire centre will have a Star Trek exhibit. The exhibition is also open during the weekdays of the coming week, so, live long and prosper!

Next week: fall vacation, solar eclipse

Some events and activities in the coming week:
- On Monday, a week-long activity will begin at the Spandau field school for children aged 8-10 with lots of autumn nature (details)
- For those who prefer to stay at home, Siva Kids offer an online Scratch course during the first week of the holiday

- On Tuesday, around 12:13, there will be a partial solar eclipse in Berlin. Want to watch it with the kids? Of course, it is enough to stand outside in a place with a clear view (and remember to protect your eyes well and not look at the phenomenon directly!) . However, the three observatories/planetarium of Berlin will also conduct joint observations (information in German), in "Zeiss" and "Archennhold" with creative activities as well (among other things, to create "observation goggles").
