Right Photo: Here you can see students working together to create a short video demonstrating how the Earth's position and tilt on it's axis create our different seasons.


The students pictured here have designed their own Solar System Game where they are acting as moons to protect their planet for astroid attacks. In the Solar System game students act and follow the rules of how objects in our Solar System travel around the sun.
