Then point a pair of strong binoculars or a telescope to get a better view. Let the tour begin PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
Mankind's ever evolving knowledge of the Solar System is explored through videos, interactive play and simulations. Learn how human knowledge of the cycles (day-night, monthly and yearly) have been observed and recorded for thousands of years. These ongoing observations have led to our current understanding of the Solar System and our place among the stars.The kit includes a handle box for easy storage and transport, as well as materials for each project.
