Trip to Carter observatory & Te Papa

We had a great trip yesterday. The morning was spent at Carter observatory where we watched a movie on the amazing dome screen. The movie was all about day and night, and seasons.






After that we were with Troy in the classroom. He showed us how big the planets are compared to the sun, and how far away each planet is.
 





Lastly we got to explore the rest of the observatory. 







Luckily the sun came out and we could eat our lunch outside at Te Papa, and have a bit of a run around.

After that we went with our helpers to explore different parts of Te Papa. We were all worn out and some children even fell asleep on the ride back to school.






Thank you to all the helpers that came with us on the trip with us. You were a fantastic support.

Today's show was a crowd pleaser! There was a lot of laughing and cheering, as well as surprised gasps as the 'crazy science guy'...
