KIDS! How big is big? June 7

Have you ever looked at the numbers astronomers use to measure distance and time with and tried to imagine what those numbers look like? It is nearly impossible and that is why we use models to try to gain an appreciation for these numbers. During this presentation, we will explore the distances and sizes of planets and our Sun in our solar system. Participants will do hand-on activities to make models and finally pace out a ‘true’ scale model of our solar system to gain a better understanding of what it actually looks like. Jon Wallace will present this free program.
