From Earth to Interstellar Space
Saturday, September 23rd, 9:30–5pm
At Yerkes Observatory (373 W. Geneva St., Williams Bay, WI, 53191)
The twin Voyager satellites left Earth 40 years ago and have opened our eyes to
the amazing worlds found in our solar system. Each Voyager continues to sail
over ten billion miles into interstellar space, a historical moment compared to
Columbus stumbling onto America and Neil Armstrong's first footsteps on the
Moon. Join us in a STEAM** workshop for K-12 teachers to discuss the continuing
significance of this voyage as the final frontier is explored. Delve into this
remarkable achievement and consider our place in the universe. Voyager carries
a 'Golden Record' as a greeting to intelligent life that the ship may encounter
thousands or millions years in the future into interstellar space. What message
would you have from the 'Pale Blue Dot?'
This workshop is presented by Enterprise In Space.
*The cost for participation in this workshop is $75.00, payable by check to Enterprise In Space or by credit through PayPal.
