Service Description

In this class, students ages 6-9 will explore the science of stars, planets, moons, and other celestial objects. Through hands-on experiments, fun simulations, art projects, and creative food activities, students will learn about space through a physical science lens. Students will explore answers to questions including: How do scientists think the solar system was formed? What are constellations for? How do meteors create craters? Why does Earth’s moon appear to change shape throughout the month? Just how far away are the planets in our solar system? What is the earth made of? How do astronauts survive in space? What causes the northern (and southern) lights?
