AstroFest Features the Comet
The annual AstroFest program for students of South Bend Community Schools featured the comet in anticipation of Comet ISON. In addition to http://visitkansascityks.com/how-much-is-viagra the tried-and-true dry ice comet activity, led by comet chef Chuck Bueter and canada viagra generic arctic trekker Chuck Rupley, two new activities by astronomy educator Ruth Craft debuted.
For the Comet Dum Dum (sorry, not pictures), two pegs were upright in a board within an ellipse. A lollipop (with the http://www.om6.com/canada-pharmacy-chewable-viagra wrapped candy representing a comet's head and the handle representing its tail) was attached to a string that swept out the elliptical orbit. The white handle always pointed away from the "sun peg". Another model of a planet orbited the "sun peg" in a circle, and a parabola drawn on the board passed near the sun akin to Comet ISON's path.
Visitors also created Comet Art with simple craft supplies. Thanks go to all the learnpbl.com staff who supported the evening of activities.
