In response to the needs of our community, OMSI is offering a new suite of virtual programs and has tailored some exsisting in-person programs to be virtual. Programs can be booked by educators, schools, group programs, families, pod leaders, and other community members looking for virtual educational programs.
Maximum of 40 participants.
Discover our place in space! Students will learn about the scale of the universe, discover how distance affects the appearance and luminosity of stars, and explore observable patterns of change that arise from the motions of the Earth, Moon, Sun, stars and galaxies. Activities include using powers of ten to understand scale, measuring the relationship between distance and brightness, and modeling how and why the seasons change.
Virtual classroom programs are designed for up to 40 student participants on zoom. Virtual programs are 45-minutes of demos and lessons and allow for a 15-minute Q&A.
