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.
Through exploration with circuit blocks, students will design and build series and parallel circuits, including the addition of switches and various devices. They will also learn to assess the differences in these circuits, and draw circuit diagrams.
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.
