Streaming Live from the Strasenburgh Planetarium.
With a slide presentation and tour of reliable websites and apps, we review the history of telescopes and astronomical observation. Then we see how gravity controls motions of planets and moons in our solar system. Finally, we take a virtual trip far from Earth in powers-of-ten steps from 100 to 1026 meters, noting cosmic structures at each scale.
Virtual Format: Teachers should plan to provide us a Zoom or Google meet link. We visit your classroom as a virtual guest.
- Please note: some school internet systems require a change in settings to allow outside speakers. We recommend a five-minute test session a few days before your scheduled program to check the connection.
- Teachers are responsible for moderating the chat and Q&A from students.
