Description

LIVING IN SPACE
Imagine waking up on a space station orbiting 240 miles above the Earth. What would you eat for breakfast? What kind of pajamas would you wear? Spend a day in the life of an astronaut and learn how living in space can be quite a challenging mission!

PLANETS & MOONS
Take your place in the grand orbit of our solar system! Circle the sun and weave through rocky planets and gas giants while creating solar and lunar eclipses. This class will have our junior space cadets shooting for the moon!

SPACE PHENOMENA
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a meteorite! Space Phenomena like comets, asteroids and meteorites can produce very dramatic effects. Join the Mad Scientist and recreate some of these effects right in your classroom!

SUNS & STARS
For centuries astronomers have studied the skies to learn about the stars: how they twinkle, how far away they are and how they appear to move across the night sky. Find out what scientists are talking about in this fun-filled stellar exploration. You may even get to create a galaxy or two!

SPACE TRAVEL
Learn what it takes to be a true globetrotter! Race a balloon rocket and design your own car engine as you learn about thrust. See the principles of propulsion at work in
a real rocket launch, and build you very own Shuttle Copter? to fly to the skies!

ATMOSPHERE & BEYOND
Slip off your moon boots and take a break from outer space! Focus your attention on the very planet we call home! Earth is the only planet in our solar system that can sustain this variety of living organisms and all of this is possible because of our atmosphere. Discover what makes our air so special!
