Galaxy Playdough

September 2013

Topics: Stars, Galaxies, Outer space

What we did: Using a simple, no bake recipe, we made our own playdough, colored it with food coloring, and rolled it in glitter to make the stars in our galaxy! Then, we wired the playdough to a laptop using the MaKey MaKey, and explored a skymap of outer space using Celestia, a free educational computer program developed by NASA to teach kids about astronomy.
