Discovering the Solar System

We went to the CEIP Povill of Olesa de Montserrat to talk about the Solar System, its origin, its place in the Universe and the objects that compose it. Our audience was two 2nd grade classrooms with students that were enthusiastic and motivated towards science in a way that the activity turned out to be successful.

We also took along a Solar System model, rocks (minerals and subproducts of meteorites) as well as a Space Shuttle Discovery model to show how we launch to space, the satellites that are in orbit, how we observe the planets of our neighborhood, and the objects that reach our ground from outer space.
