Field Trip to Adler Planetarium scheduled next week

Save the "shortened" New Trier day next Monday, Sept 21 to visit Adler Planetarium.

Senior students working on Big Bang Theory and the history of the universe.
Viewed: Nova Film clip NASA Goddard Space Flight Center which explains the birth of the universe and the BIG BANG 13.7 billion years ago. Our understanding of how the Universe evolved since the Big Bang continues to evolve. Stars forged most of the elements of the universe heavier than hydrogen and helium. Stars are the ultimate alchemists making every atom in our universe.

For additional information: Listen to 11 top physicists and astronomers take on the challenge of describing the strangest entities in the universe. Nova's website on Blackholes explained

Junior students: Color Spectrum Science Lab.
Make predictions about what color you'll see through the red gel and the blue gel.
Is black the combination of all colors or is black the absence of all colors? Why do astronomers use infrared telescopes to look at stars.
