Our Spooky Science program continues, this time at Montevideo Elementary School.
A great crowd turned out to see this event, our first time at Montevideo. The sky was cloudy, so we concentrated on the Mobile Observatory software, and all of our new spooky science stations.
The glowing stations outside were a big hit as always, and inside, the screaming cups and screaming balloons, spider sense webs, optical illusions, take-home experiments, and solar system size display were very popular. In the front of the school, our big, hands-on lever station got a lot of use, with students able to lift 70 pounds with one hand.
Thank you to our great volunteers for making this an amazing night out!
Sorry, no pictures for this event, but we had a great time as always! Russ from OC Astronomers brought his massive 20-inch diameter telescope, and we had the Mobile Observatory running live video from the ISS, with Eyes on the Solar System outside.
In the quad area we had a full Spooky Science event, with over 20 stations, including objects that glow under “black” (UV-A) light, spider-sense webs, plasma sphere, take-home experiments, mathematical arts and crafts, and many more.
The fall season of Science Heads is under way with an event at Lake Forest Elementary School! We premiered our Spooky Science program, featuring our mobile observatory (MOBS), plasma sphere, exhibit of household materials that glow under UV-A (“black”) light, “blood” tub, optical illusions, spider-sense webs, and over twenty other great stations!
We were able to see Saturn through our telescope, and had quite a line of people taking a look. The MOBS also had live video from the International Space Station, and an outside display of NASA’s Eyes on the Solar System software.
We are just getting started on our Fall events. Stay tuned for more reports!
A big thank you to our volunteers who made this an outstanding event!
