6:00 PM EU Planetarium presents "World at Night"
World at Night

Specifically for children ages 1 - 12, join us as we meet our nighttime friends who live on Presque Isle. One of our friends, the wise old owl, will introduce us to the night sky!

If weather permits, public viewing in the observatory will follow each evening show. Reservations are required and can be made at https://www.edinboro.edu/directory/offices-services/planetarium/planetarium-reservations.html or by calling 814-732-2493.
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Uncomfortable Conversations – The People's Will?
Americans choose presidents through the Electoral College. What is it? Why do we have it? Why have some U.S. Presidents – including two of the last three – received fewer popular votes than rival candidates, yet won the presidency? Is the Electoral College still relevant? And, if we wanted to change it, is it even possible?

These are the questions that will be addressed by our panel of political analysts.
