Take a guided tour of our solar system and beyond, and then plan a space mission of your own. We will start by exploring our own Earth and then expand to other planets, solar systems and far-away galaxies. Join us to learn about past and current space missions and about different kinds of stars, habitable planets, black holes and even a little relativity. Students will come up with a plan for a space mission and build a miniature spacecraft to present at a “rocket launch” on the last day.
