Air Zoo program lets kids explore planets

On Saturday, Aug. 27, Air Zoo visitors will have the chance to learn about the solar system through hands-on activities at this month’s Super Science Saturday: Which Planet Am I?

Each 30-minute presentation (at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.) will feature fun facts about each planet where kids will have to guess which one is being described. They’ll also be able to make planets with colored layers and rings out of “planetary play dough.”

Super Science Saturdays are held at the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, Mich., once a month and are included in the price of general admission. They are geared for children of all ages (and their parents), but are targeted specifically toward upper elementary and middle school students.

Next Super Science Saturday is Sept. 24: Magnetism—It’s Everywhere! Kids will learn about magnetism, sunspots, and how planets and stars can have magnetic properties. They’ll also have the chance to make their own magnet and play with “magic magnet fluid.”
