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.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
