Space At The Powerhouse

Today we joined the Little Explorers home education group for a visit to the Powerhouse Museum for a tour around the space gallery. We all got to wear headphones which made it easy to hear our guide, and the tour was made more interesting with music and sound effects. We also managed to catch a very interesting talk on how rockets are built.

Afterwards we had a look around at other exhibits in the museum. We particularly liked this Strasbourg clock model. It shows lots of information in addition to the time including the positions of the planets and stars, the days of the week, moon phases and tides. Lots of little characters come out of the clock at various times in the day. We're thinking of making our own version.
