Stars and Constellations at Tellus Science Museum

STARS AND CONSTELLATIONS

Are all stars alike? Do they really move through the sky each night? How does the position of the Sun affect fixed objects on Earth and their shadows? What are the physical attributes of stars? What are constellations?

Virtual Field Trips PLUS (VFT+)

Exploring the Solar System at Tellus Science Museum

EXPLORING THE SOLAR SYSTEM

All students will participate in a kinetic activity in the lab that will examine the orbital paths of the inner planets. Students will learn the order of the planets, explain why planets and constellations appear to move backwards at times, understand how planet size affects the number of moons, and identify the phases of the moon as well as model its synchronous rotation.

GALACTIC WEATHER

Join National Geographic on a spectacular journey to witness the most beautiful, powerful, and mysterious weather phenomena in the solar system. Students will also enjoy an introduction to the night sky, find the Big Dipper and a few seasonal constellations. They will also explore the tools of measuring and predicting weather. Program will run for 1.5 hours.

METEORITES, MOON ROCKS, AND COLLISIONS

Enhance your 4th or 6th grade students’ understanding of the solar system as students will compare and contrast the physical attributes of planets. Hands-on experiments include modeled meteorite impacts on a planetary surface. Students will learn to distinguish between planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. Program will run for 1.5 hours.

Stars and Constellations at Tellus Science Museum

STARS AND CONSTELLATIONS

Are all stars alike? Do they really move through the sky each night? How does the position of the Sun affect fixed objects on Earth? What are the physical attributes of stars vs. planets? How do you find the constellations and why are they in different places throughout the year? We will look at these questions and more in this 1.5 hour program.

Alternative Energy at Tellus Science Museum

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY

Explore the need for alternative energy! In the planetarium show, Dynamic Earth, students will learn about the ultimate energy source, the sun. Direct links between carbon dioxide emissions and global warming will be discussed. In the lab, students will investigate how plants can be converted into fuels for today’s combustion engines. Students will stop at the wind turbine and learn the benefits that wind turbines provide for different parts of the country. In the solar house, students will help demonstrate different types of alternative energy car models of the future and determine the pros and cons of each type. They will also explore the solar house and discover its many benefits. Program will run for 1.5 hours.
