After School Program

Cosmology - Exploratory Course

January 9, 2015 - February 13, 2015

Stars - Science Research Course

Cosmology is the study of the Universe as a whole – what it is, what's in it, how it came to be, and what the ultimate fate of it is.  Today, Cosmologists study things like the Big Bang, Dark Energy, and the shape of the Universe.  There are also cosmologies from other cultures and parts of the world, which describe the heavens in relation to their view of the cosmos.  In this class, you'll learn about both aspects of cosmology – see how different cultures represent their cosmologies through exhibits from around the Museum, and learn about how scientists study the Universe and what we have learned (and what we don't know!).
