Boys and Girls Club Live Stream

Live Stream

Bring the Cosmosphere to your classroom live!

Are you and your students unable to make it to the Cosmosphere? Live Streams are fun, educational, and engaging interactions with Cosmosphere experts promoting learning through live science demonstrations. It’s the safest way to introduce your students to the theories of liquid-fueled rockets, combustion, living in space, and more!

Live Stream Program

Join us online for 45-minute live-stream activities. Classroom activities will be sent to teachers to help support the live stream.

  • 45 Minute Live Stream Presentation
    •  Classroom Activity Support 
  • Living in Space (K-12): Sleeping, eating, and going to the bathroom are slightly different in space. Learn what it’s like to live in space! Discover the science of orbit, types of space food, and how to become an astronaut.
  • Beyond Our Solar System (3-12): What exists beyond our solar system, and how do we learn about deep space?
  • Dr. Goddard’s Lab (K-12): Students take a trip back to the 1930s lab of Dr. Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocketry. This interactive show uses live demonstrations on a journey through the history of rockets.
  • Lunar Landers (K-12): How do engineers contribute to our study of space? Students will be introduced to engineering principles and career paths as they study the application of engineering design theory.
  • Space Photography (3-12): Students will learn how space telescopes like Hubble and Webb take pictures of such faraway places and explore how taking pictures in different wavelengths in the EM Spectrum gives us information about these places.
  • Weather (K-12): Explore the scientific principles behind cloud formation, humidity, and what causes weather changes.
  • Energy (3-12): Energy is everywhere.  Learn what it is, how we use it, and why it is important.
  • Electricity (3-12): Learn the scientific principles behind how electricity works.
  • Chemistry (K-12):  Students will learn about atoms, elements, and chemical versus physical changes through exciting (and explosive) demonstrations.  Demonstrations include observing what happens when an alkali metal is exposed to water, lighting salts on fire, experiencing sulfur hexafluoride’s effect on a voice, and exploding a hydrogen balloon
  • Characteristics of Life (3-12): Determining if something is living is more complicated than it seems.  Learn about the characteristics of life and debate if your candle is a living creature.
