Travel Into a Black Hole (Ages 8-10)
In this one-time astronomy & physics course, students will learn the science of black holes through a simulation of what it would be like to travel into one.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel into a black hole? What would you see? What would you feel? Where would you go? Did you know that the word “spaghettification” is a real term used by scientists when talking about traveling into black holes? Students will go on a journey into a black hole to learn about this mystical phenomenon. The class is a simulation to help students visualize the different properties of black holes and how they influence objects in their...
This is an adaptation of a lesson I taught for 8th graders for two years at a college preparatory school. The foundation of this unit is based on research conducted by leading scientists in the field of astrophysics. The course is then enhanced with age-appropriate material designed to be accessible for teenagers and address a wide variety of learning styles.
