Chabot welcomes all homeschool families! Join us for our science classes designed for all grades, take a trip through the solar system in our full-dome planetarium, tour the historic telescopes and complete a scavenger hunt to win a prize!

Planet Trek

Using planetarium software and other engaging media we’ll learn how to identify planets in the current night sky and learn how our Solar System, and other solar systems, form. Through hands-on activities we’ll model the scale sizes of our planets and dwarf planets. We’ll investigate impact craters on earth and elsewhere in the Solar System and experiment with the variables that affect crater size. And we’ll perform simulations of radar mapping on Venus and plot our results.
