Space Workshop

Today, we were very lucky to take part in a Space workshop run by Geobus. We started the session by understanding what an Earth Scientist was and what their job entails. Then, we used our prior knowledge of solar systems to complete our first task and then we learnt all about the planets in our solar system. We were then shown examples of other objects in the solar system including comets, asteroids and meteors. We learnt about the differences between a comet, an asteroid and a meteor including what they each orbit and were shown the meteorite specimens. Finally, we discussed what happens when an asteroid land on a planet’s surface – creating a crater. Our favourite part was using our 3D glasses to look at images of craters and moons.
