All welcome.
Exploring the Universe
Exploring the Universe examines some of the big questions in science: Where did the universe come from? What is it made of? How do we know what we know? How has our understanding changed throughout human history? We’ll use the Planetarium’s DIGISTAR software to explore the planets and stars, visit distance galaxies, and use Canadian technology to see the universe in a different light.
This program is geared towards the grade 9 curriculum; for example, participants will compare and contract different historical perspectives on the relationship between Earth and space, and learn to differentiate between the major components of the universe.
