Outer Space Adventures (Grades 6-9)
The universe is the final frontier to us, and in this beginning class, you will get to explore the big questions: How did the universe come into existence? How did the sun and all the planets form in our solar system? Is there life outside our own solar system? What is an exoplanet? How do stars form and die? The effects of gravity will be demonstrated using an exhibit that shows how space-time distorts. Join us to discover what the building blocks of life itself are…and how it relates to you!
