Ask the Chief Scientist: All About Space FREE
Grades: 4-12thLength: 45 MinCategories: Science, STEMTime: October 25, 2017 1:10 pm EST

Astrophysicist and COSI’s Chief Scientist Paul Sutter takes you on an interactive tour of the universe, answering all your questions from black holes to alien worlds. These programs are learner led based on questions from your students.

Here are some example questions for discussion:

Which planet or moon should we explore next?
How do we learn about black holes even though the nearest one is far, far away?
What do you think creatures on another planets might look like, and why?
How do we learn about how the sun works, even though we can’t see inside of it?
How do you think scientists are able to measure such incredible distances in the universe?
What do you think a job in a STEM field looks like, and why?
