PD Day Camp: Design an exoplanet

Virtual Event Virtual Event

November 25 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am EST

Junior Session (Grades 1-5):

This session will introduce students to one of the newest and most exciting fields of astronomy, the discovery of exoplanets (planets orbiting around other stars). Students will learn how extra solar planets form!

Following this, students will embark on a two-part activity where they are given information about a real-life exoplanet and must 1) design the exoplanet, and 2) name the exoplanet. The best names that students come up with through these sessions may be submitted to the international body responsible for naming celestial objects as an actual candidate for that planet!
