Astronomy Super Stars Camp

Solar System

Tour our solar system and then fly back to earth! A quick tour of our solar system, then back to earth! This space adventure starts with a trip to Pluto. Then we travel to each of the inner planets and our own moon, landing to explore the unique landscape or moonscape. We’ll whisk past the Asteroid Belt, then on to Jupiter and the other gas planets. Next, we’ll visit the outer edge of our system, past the Kuiper Belt, to the farthest reaches of the Oort Cloud. During our imaginary journey you will make your own sun clock and telescope. You will also build models of planets to scale and place each planet in its proper orbit around the sun. Along the way, you will learn about light, constellations and our solar system.
