Various topics can be discussed upon request including: The Sun and
Stars, Specific missions such as Mars and Saturn Exploration,
Magnificent Moons. Some programs can be customized.
Programs are generally for adults and children. Some are more appropriate for one than the other. In general I prefer
parents to attend with their children and continue discussions at home. At home projects may be suggested. There may be a
charge for non-SSA programs.
