Stargazing was held February 28, 2020

It is a 2 hour event that takes place in the evening. Students rotate for 20 minute activities throughout the night. Such activities may include making a comet, a Star Clock to tell you when stars/planets are out during months/hours, trivia of the curriculum that has been selected for the year, Space Olympics (various objects to be thrown/kicked and jumping - this demonstrates how gravity is affected on the moon or planets - math calculations are involved and last but not least, what everyone looks forward to the opportunity to look through telescopes.
