"A wonderful experience overall! Very informative, fun, friendly, and educational. I would definitely recommend 'What's Out There...' to groups of all ages interested in learning about space, and the night sky. Well done!"
Thanks again! Much appreciated!
Mr. Fichter and The 6th Grade Team at Hillside Avenue School, Cranford, NJ
We are returning to HSA in May, 2017 for the third year in a row.
In the busy environment of today’s schools, time is a valuable commodity. Often, finding time for an enriching educational experience, while important and worthwhile, falls by the wayside in favor of rigorous classroom instruction. It has become more difficult to take a field trip to help stimulate a student’s interest in a variety of subjects. Fortunately, this concern is addressed fully by my program. What’s Out There… is an experience that will bring the field trip to your school!
Through my program, students are able to enter a planetarium and see the night sky up close. Science comes alive through an interactive presentation delivered right at school. Not only do children have the benefit of seeing the stars above like never before, but with What’s Out There… they become the assistants to the presenter. During a fun presentation in a collapsible planetarium, students will be able to point out what they see as part of an engaging experience, encouraging curiosity and excitement about the world around them. They will explore stars and constellations, learn how the planet moves and ponder the mysteries the skies hold.
With an in-school enrichment experience like mine, I take care of everything to ensure a successful “journey” among the stars, without ever leaving your campus. My program offers a lesson for the classroom teacher to use prior to the planetarium experience, as a PowerPoint presentation or lesson plan and paper hand out. I will arrive at your location, set up all equipment and guide the students through the cosmos, allowing them to see the stars up close and make meaningful discoveries about our universe. After the experience, teachers will be provided with various follow up activities to use with the class to extend the lesson. Various grades can be accommodated as all materials are leveled and aligned to state science standards. The lessons are also tailored to the time of year and can be created with specific interests or goals in mind. With What’s Out There… the sky is truly the limit!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or special requests. My goal is to help you reach yours.
I am now scheduling dates for the 2016 - 2017 school year. I have many returning schools and I would like to give you the opportunity to join their numbers.
Please keep in mind that I can accommodate after school programs and camps as well. Together, we can help children answer the age-old question of What’s Out There…
