Webinar: Modelling the Solar System


Thursday, September 27, 2018

3:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (other time zones)

Visualizing the Solar system to scale is very difficult, especially when taking into account both the sizes of the objects and the distances between them. In this webinar, we will discuss the real scale of the Solar system and offer educational activity ideas to see how big it is! One of these activities, which will be presented thanks to a partnership with Actua, X-Chem Outreach and Science Literacy Week, is an interdisciplinary activity which combines astronomy, mathematics, robotics, and coding. Don’t miss it!

The webinar will be recorded for those who can not be present live. Register to access the webinar, documents, and recording. It’s free!
