Build a telescope and star map to investigate the stars and constellations. Assemble a model of the solar system and learn about the planets that share it.
Find out how Earthís rotation creates day and night, how Earthís axis and revolution around the sun causes the seasons, and how the moonís rotation around Earth gives us the phases of the moon. Use this space exploration kit to see how meteorites formed the craters on the moon. Make a moon flipbook and a moon calendar. Build a sundial and a solar collector to experiment with the sun. Grasp a cometís tail and learn about how meteoroids become falling stars.
