NEW! Discover the foundations of astronomy in this out-of-this-world outreach workshop. First, we’ll explore our stellar neighborhood – our solar system – and construct a classroom-sized model of the relative size and distance of the planets. Then, we’ll examine air pressure and explore how your weight and even your age might be different on another planet! Finally, you’ll put teamwork to the test with engineering challenges by building a free-standing moon base from simple materials and designing, building, testing, and redesigning air-powered rockets.
