AstroLight is all about exploring science, in particular Astronomy and Light science. Down in the Pumping Station on the other side of the Scienceworks Arena we have a HEAP of activities for kids of all ages and sizes that explore a range of astronomy ideas.
At the Mount Burnett Observatory(MBO) astronomy tables you will be able to discover your Birthday Star, create your own Constellation in a Can, figure out Which Planet is That by feeling your way to the surface of the planets, estimate the Age of a Constellation by looking at the colours of the stars and explore how planets Orbit the Sun.
At the CAASTRO/University of Melbourne’s Telescopes in Schools tables you can make your own Solar System Model to take home, get folding some Telescope or Star Origami with our origami expert and create your own LEGO Spaceship or Satellite. Please take a picture home, not our LEGO – Thanks!
Learn lots and have a heap of fun doing it. Certainly lots of activities to keep you busy!
