The students had a great time and it fit in nicely with our "weight" and "gravity" discussions. Thanks!!!
The kids loved it! I thought it was one of the best programs we've had so far. I love the fact that it was science related, and hands on. When my kids had to write about it in their journal, they all learned something new from it!
I have to commend you on the planetarium event we had this week! It was super cool! The kids loved the hands on activities and they thought the planetarium was about as awesome as it gets! Very age appropriate, very educational and very fun! What a great combination!
My class loved the Planetarium and the additional time to fiddle around with all of the cool stuff. We really never get a chance to set things out and let the kids "play" with them so this was a real treat!
The kids really enjoyed the program and the science stations. I would repeat this program in the future!
My students LOVED the assembly. They said they wish they could do it again. I also really thought it was great and it fits right in with our science curriculum.
My students loved the dome and working in the different centers. This was so valuable and a change from a sit down assembly. Students love the science and building projects.
I didn't get to go inside the planetarium but all the activities in the gym looked awesome! Very engaging and hands-on. My students LOVED it!! When I asked them to rate it with a fist (0) to 5, they gave it a ten. All the teachers I talked to had positive comments too. These kind of activities make such a difference in their overall school experience.
These are comments from the students…….
The second grade students enjoyed the planetarium and the hands on activities very much.
I thought the activities and Planetarium were a 5 stars. It showed me constellations that I never thought I could see at my house.
It was excellent~ you don’t get to have those activities at home. I loved playing with the air guns.
I thought the planetarium was really cool because I felt I was going to outer space.
5 Stars for the snap circuits~ I built a circuit (connection) with a spinner.
Awesome: I felt like I was an astronaut getting off a spaceship on each planet.
The air guns and the dinosaur teeth were breathtaking. I like playing with them.
Everything was perfect. It was fascinating and I learned a lot. I didn’t realize there were that many constellations. The air guns were fun.
I didn’t know that other planets had moons. I want my teacher to buy us a magnifying glass for our computer at school. The hairy spider legs were creepy.
5 star rating because the planetarium was great. Neptune has a hurricane in the middle. The great red spot of Jupiter was awesome to see too.
It felt like we were astronauts traveling through outer space learning about each planet.
Amazing: I have never been to a planetarium before. I liked how he changed the time to see different constellations. I liked going through the Milky Way Galaxy.
The magnifying glass was amazing.
I saw dog bones and blood though the microscope. Wow!
5 stars because there was a lot to do: I got to analyze dinosaur fossils, bones, and teeth.
I like traveling through space~ Uranus looked cool (blue) because of the gases in its atmosphere.
It was a great opportunity to bring FUN into our school. It is something the students will be able to remember and be able to make connections as we introduce the adventures of Science.
