KELLER, TEXAS – What a pleasure it was to be at Bear Creek Intermediate!! Thank you for being a fantastic audience and for such wonderful participation. You guys really know your eclipses and moon phases! We also had a great time discussing Pluto and why it has been reclassified as a dwarf planet. As one student explained it…”Poor Pluto has been shamed, and is too small to be a regular planet.”
You had some great questions also, such as, how long does it take the solar system to orbit around the Milky Way? Would you believe it takes about 230 million years!! WOW!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day on your campus with so many future scientists!
