UNIVERSE The universe is limitless! It contains stars, solar systems, galaxies, black holes and much more. Universe looks at these wonders-all incredible, all unique and all just a small part of a larger entity. Students will explore some big questions about the universe, including: How was it formed? How big is it? How can we explore the far reaches of the universe? They’ll learn about light years and the electromagnetic spectrum and take a close-up look at a gamma ray telescope. A fun, hands-on activity will demonstrate why it seems so dark in space, even though there are billions of stars! This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Earth Science: Structure of the Earth System, Earth’s History and Earth in the solar system.
