Night Sky HCMS

The HCMS Middle School students, along with help from STEM Coordinator, Mr. Alan, constructed a planetarium for a hands-on approach to studying astronomy.  They used their new knowledge of radial coordinate systems to make an accurate representation of the stars in our October Sky with black, plastic sheeting.  The planets visible at the time, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, were illuminated with LEDs and knowledge of electrical circuits.
