Sanity Savers: Nebula in a Jar

While studying space one of my favorite things to study are Nebulae. Nebulae are almost like clouds in space that are made up of different gases and space dust. Nebulae take up trillions and trillions of miles in space, but the gases are spread out and slowly gather together over time. Here are just a few nebulae to look at before we start our project. What colors do you see? Do you see any shapes in the clouds? Today we are going to be making our own nebulae!

Sanity Savers: Star Jars

Today is National Space Day! It is a day to celebrate all that is STEM. The goal of National Space Day is to promote science, technology, engineering, and math to young people and inspire them to follow career paths in STEM. Today we are focusing on space, and in this project we will be creating a Star Jar that will light the night with stars in the comfort of your own home.

Sanity Savers: Catapult
