Astronomy Lab

Build paper rockets & find out what helps them fly. Visit planets & know how far they are. Tie dye the sun & compare planet sizes while learning about the scale

This course contains 6 activities you can do with the following materials:

Astronomy ruler, rocket template, planet template, tie dye set and compass set

Use these materials to build paper rockets and find out what helps them fly. Visit planets and find out how far they are. Tie dye the sun and compare planet sizes while learning about the scale.

Our videos are created to include questions, and give you time to pause the video and explore on your own. Our goal is not just to help you do the activity, but to explore and extend it. That’s why we call each one an expedition. It’s an adventure into something new.

You can choose to find these materials on your own, or go through the course with a LAB IN A BOX here. Our boxes come with a special voucher code that lets you take this course for free.
