HANDS-ON SPACE SCIENCES
In the past years, we developed a repertory of educational materials, activities, exhibit modules and workshops for events with diverse participants: classes, talks, exhibits, science festivals etc.
We work with ‘real’ data in nearly all of our modules. Making data accessible to the public is part of our concept.
ACTIVITIES AND EXPERIMENTS from the workshops, with instructions
MAKE MAGNETIC FIELDS VISIBLE
The iron filings look like the magnetic fields around the sunspots.
However, there, they are incredibly much stronger.
> Instructions magnetic fields experiment
MAKE A FLIPBOOK
The pictures are real scientific solar data.
You can see much better what happens on the Sun
using short movies rather than single images.
> Instructions flipbooks
> Solar eruption
> Solar storm
LOOK AT 3D–IMAGES OF THE SUN
Use 3D cardboard glasses, for example.
DO YOUR GLASSES PROTECT YOU FROMUV–LIGHT?
Test them (and other materials) using UV-beads.
> Instructions UV-experiment
CREATE A SUN-EARTH MODEL
How big is the Earth compared to the Sun?
How far away is it from the Sun?
Terst your friends and family.
> Instructions Sun-Earth Model
MAKE A RAINBOW
Woh can make the most beautiful rainbow?
Send me a picture.

COOK A DESSERT SUN
A little Sun!
Looks nice and tastes exactly the way you want it to,
depending on the flavour you mix in.
My favourite is orange blossom water.
Lemon or orange flavour work too.
Let me know if you found a great flavour for the Sun.
