About this item

In a series of fun and involving hands-on astronomy experiments, kids learn how the Sun's rays affect the visibility of Venus, determine the difference between local sun time and clock time, and observe and chart the phases of the Moon. They will also demonstrate why only one side of the Moon is visible from the Earth, make a model of the celestial sphere, and create a model of a multistage rocket. Featuring color illustrations and safe, simple step-by-step instructions, Janice VanCleave shows just how much fun science can be.
