Science Workshop: Earth, Sun and Moon

July 9 - 2:00 pm - July 11 - 3:30 pm

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing and first moonwalk, the Australian Museum is hosting Earth, Sun and Moon science workshops during the Winter School Holidays.

Children investigate our place in the Universe and gain an appreciation of astronomy with hands-on experiments and mind-blowing demonstrations. 

How does the Earth, Moon and Sun work in the Solar System? How does Earth’s tilt affect the seasons? What can craters tell us about the Moon’s formation? How do sundials tell the time? What is the difference between a star, planet & moon anyway? Children will discover how lunar phases, eclipses and tides actually work!

Presented by Fizzics Education.
