Tyke Explorers: Twinkle Twinkle

Copernicus Room

Expand your preschooler's (ages 3-5) universe by enrolling in our Tyke Explorers Program. Kids get to bring a special grown-up to share in the excitement of science and space. Classes are a combination of instructor-led lessons and self-guided, hands-on experimentation and exploration. With Chabot's park-like setting, hands-on exhibits, laboratories and experienced educators, we guarantee a memorable adventure for you and your child.

Stellar Science – Have you ever wondered what stars are made of, how they form, or what happens when they die? Join us this February as we take a look at the billions of stars in our Milky Way Galaxy!

Day 1: February 5 – Twinkle, Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle little star. How I wonder what you are? I wonder do stars really twinkle? Do they make pictures in the sky? 

Day 2: February 12 – Life of a Star

Follow a star from its birth in a nebula all the way through its middle and old ages. Along the way, you’ll learn about stars of different sizes and colors, supernova, and black holes! 

Day 3: February 19 – One Sun, One light

One sun lighting everyone. Let’s take a closer look (not directly) at that big ball of fire in thh sky and also visit our new exhibit “Touch the Sun”.
