Learners will dive deep into Earth and Space during this program where they examine the clockwork nature of the Solar System. This hands-on workshop will see learners explain predictable phenomena on Earth such as eclipses using an in-house designed augmented reality app. Inside the recently upgraded digital planetarium they will explore how our understanding of the Solar System has changed throughout history, and look for evidence for heliocentricity. If weather permits, learners will look through a professional telescope to see objects in the sky.
Please note: 5:00 pm session only available May through July, 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm sessions only available April through September.
