Astrolabes & Great Galaxies

The night sky has always inspired and mesmerized the human soul. In this workshop, students will learn about the development of space observation. They will be in awe of the early mapping system of the stars in outer space and how the astrolabe was used as a multi-angle measuring tool.  Young learners will make their own astrolabe and learn about its diverse uses. Following that, students will get artsy and create their own galaxy painting with watercolor.

Ages: 7-11
