How can we use a star's spectrum to find and explore exoplanets?
This session is designed to look at what Exoplanets are and to explore one method of detection.
To discuss or book this or any of our other workshops, please contact Tally Roberts.
For this workshop we provide a delivery officer, a PowerPoint presentation and laminated activity sheets (with dry-wipe markers).
A presentation screen or projector which we can use to display the presentation.
This session is 45-60 minutes.
As this workshop builds on GCSE knowledge of exoplanets from Physics and identifying elements from Chemistry, we recommend this for years 11-13 (ages 15-18).
As with many of our offerings, this can be presented a stand-alone session or as part of a series.
We do offer a workshop on Planetary Exploration presentation which acts as a good introduction for this activity.
Currently, we are working on developing new astronomy experiences using our planetariums.
As with most of our workshops, we are happy to offer our support remotely through Teams or Zoom conferencing software.
We will send all handouts through by e-mail before the session to be printed ready.
