     “Susie’s Snowflake” is an introduction to the easily recognized constellation patterns of the winter night sky, and to the characteristics of snowflakes. Susie is a young girl who observes and compares numerous physical properties of objects - including size, shape, color and texture - using her five senses. She employs the technology of lenses to study snowflakes with a magnifier and a microscope. We don’t always have a white winter , but it always snows in the planetarium! After the planetarium presentation students will participate in a related program (“Scientific Sense”) where they will explore properties of air. They will be exposed to methods of investigation used by scientists.
