SOLAR SYSTEM WORKSHOP – Planetarium
1 hour 45 minutes – $6.00/ student
Curriculum Target Grade: 6
This program includes a 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. Designed specifically to support the Grade 6 “Exploring the Solar System” cluster of the Manitoba Science Curriculum.
