This program includes a live Planetarium show and a hands-on workshop. Each planet is explored up close, with a focus on how humans have explored many worlds using probes and satellites – many of them with technology developed in Canada. In the workshop, students map out a portion of an imaginary planet using hands-on “remote sensing” techniques. Like a jigsaw puzzle, each map portion comes together on a board to form a large region of the imaginary planet.
