Walk the Solar System

Our Solar System is REALLY BIG. No picture has been made that accurately represents it. Most people can't grasp the huge distances or size of the sun until they experience a scale model. Using everyday objects for the planets, we will be spending an hour and a half at Swan Island setting up a 1:6,336,000,000 scale model of our solar system...walking a half mile from our blazing orange bowling ball Sun all the way to our cocoa puff Neptune! Aimed at kids, but all will enjoy. Come see this for yourself! Sponsored by STEM For more details contact: Kurt.R.Johansen@gmail.com ONLINE SIGNUP REQUIRED Go to: bitly.com/SSW-2016
