We are excited to announce that Scott Negley will be returning to Bradford Elementary on February 10thand 11th to present his portable planetarium program, Mainly Stars, to our third grade students. This program has always a favorite here at Bradford Elementary!

Educated initially as an engineer, a binocular tour of the heavens ignited a passion for the stars that led him to the University of Pennsylvania for a M.S. degree in astronomy and a 40-year career as an astronomy educator. He has been privileged to convey the splendor of the universe to students of all ages, initially as a university instructor, then as a school district planetarium director, adult school teacher and elderhostel instructor. As a Solar System Ambassador, Scott enjoys the opportunity to educate and inspire others with NASA’s magnificent discoveries.
