Grade: K

Are other planets hot or cold?  What is the Moon made of?  Explore the Solar System and learn about the properties of planets and moons.  We will start at the Sun and work our way out to the coldest parts of our Solar System and beyond to nearby star systems.


Grades: 1 - 3

Earth orbits the Sun and allows us to see different things at different times of the year.  Join us as we discover how the sky changes from one season to another.  Students learn what stars and planets are visible from their homes.  We then examine our neighborhood in space, covering all major objects found in the Solar System.



Grades: 4 and Up

The Milky Way Galaxy is our home.  From distant stars to our own astronomical backyard, we will take a look at the Milky Way and the wonders it holds.  Come with us as we discover wonders both near and far.
