Planetarium Workshop for Kids

Recommended for kids ages 6 to 9 years old, the Madrid Planetarium holds workshops every Saturday where kids can simulate their own research of astronomy.  First, kids visit the surveillance screen for constellations and study supernovae or explosion of stars. Using the astronomical observatory telescope, kids should be able to draw constellations and name stars. Then kids will see how a simulator creates the different phases of the moon through the relationship of between the sun, the earth and the moon. Finally, kids will put together the images of the universe sent from the Hubble Space Telescope.
The goal of this workshop is to awaken children's curiosity for astronomy and interest in the world around us through playing with the different concepts of astronomy.
