Earth & Space Systems: Starship Studio
Grade 6

At the Galleries

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Create a starship studio in Oakville Galleries' Education Centre! Working in groups, students will paint clay models of the sun, planets and moons, then use these sculptures to build a three-dimensional map of the solar system. Over the course of the day, students will also draw plans for a ship that could sustain extended travel in outer space, and use new and recycled materials to assemble prototypes of technological tools and devices needed to explore the solar system they've constructed.

  • Full day

  • $10/student ($250 minimum)
