BUFFALO, MINNESOTA – SparkPoint Innovations had a great time bringing Orbit Earth Expo to the students of Northwinds Elementary School.
We enjoyed teaching students in grade level programs throughout the day. Students were on the ball, solving mysteries of the solar system as they rotated and revolved the earth and moon models with ease.
Scale of the moon? Solved. Scale of the sun? No problem – but can you imagine if we were to bring the scale sized sun that would match Orb? No way! Wouldn’t begin to fit in your city, much less your school! It’s a much better idea to bring a marble to match our sun model.
We had some fun questions come up today! First, how DID we get that model into the gym? Secret: Orb is like a huge beach ball that we inflate for schools. When he’s deflated, he is about the size of a pillow! And a second question, how many earths would it take to fill up the sun? Answer? One million. Wow!
Catherine and Bonnie had a BLAST with you guys! SparkPoint even heard that it was one of the BEST behaved audiences Catherine has taught in her time with SparkPoint – WOW! Northwinds should be so proud of its fantastic students! Thanks for having us to your school today! We can’t wait to see you again in the future.
