Comet Atcha!
Join us as we go whizzing through space and around the sun on the tails of a comet. A mixture of ice, carbon dioxide, dust and other gases, comets are surrounded by a large cloud of gas and dust which compose their tail. As comets approach the sun in their orbit they heat up and their tail gets longer, splitting into two – gases and dust.

Participants will experience this phenomenon first hand, using three dimensional geometry to build their own comet wind socks; adding separate tails to help detail a comets path through space.

Free & open to the public with all materials provided!
