Space: Going the Distance!

Two 25 Min. Presentations – $375, Presentation Pair Thereafter – $150 – restrictions apply

Discover the incredible scale of our solar system as we model the great distances between the planets and our sun.

Put on those thinking caps to explore size, measurement, and proportion. Discover the incredible distances between the planets and our sun as we model our solar system. If we could get the entire solar system into a classroom or gym, how much space would there be between the sun and Neptune?

If we downsized Jupiter to about three feet across, how big would the sun have to be? And if we shrunk the sun to the size of a marble, how big would the Earth be? Check out Space: Going the Distance! for the answers to these questions and more!

It’s science on an amazing scale!
