Learners create a Micro:bit step counter using Make Code.
What is science? In this activity, youth learn about the different ways of studying the world around us. They will use the scientific method to design and test an alka seltzer rocket.
Learn how space junk can impact safe space travel. They also create a star finder to help them explore the night sky.
This activity is a virtual delivery option for the Tomatosphere: Setting up the Seed Investigation workshop.
Participants examine the effects of he space environment on the germination of tomato seeds.

An activity to demonstrate how a planisphere operates. A planisphere is a star chart analog computing instrument in the form of two adjustable disks that rotate on a common pivot.
In this activity, participants will build a scale model of the distances in the solar system using a roll of toilet paper to better understand distances in space.
In this activity, we will learn all about gases, pressure and the states of matter by making alka-seltzer rockets!
Perform a simple calculation to see how gravity affects your weight.
In this activity, students will test different "alien soil samples" for signs of life.
Students will be building their very own crater and testing different sized balls from various heights to see how their crater size may differ.
Students will learn about stars and create a "constellation viewer" where they can create a constellation to look at.
Students are given an unlabeled picture of a night sky and asked to find the constellations in it.
