The Amazing Light Show and Workshop – Planetarium
1 hour 45 minutes – $6.00/ student
Curriculum Target Grade: 4
This two-part program is based on the Grade 4 “Light” cluster of the Manitoba Science Curriculum. Inside the Planetarium, students participate in a talk-show style program, learning the basic concepts of light from such guests as Sir Isaac Newton and roving reporters throughout the solar system. After the show, students head into the workshop for hands-on experimentation with lenses and mirrors. As part of the program, each student makes their own kaleidoscope to take home.
