What is our primary source of heat and light? How do the daily and seasonal cycles of the Earth affect everyday life? Students will answer these questions and more with a trip to the museum’s inflatable planetarium.
In this program, students will explore the phenomena of light and geometric optics, including reflection, refraction, diffusion, focus, the convergence and divergence of light, the transmission of light, and shadows.
This program introduces students to the power of simple machines, and how we use pulleys and gears in our everyday lives. They will experiment with pulley systems to discover how they help with tasks such as lifting heavy objects.
