Solar System Week offers planetary exploration

Saturday, March 18, 2017
It’s been “Solar System Week” at the after-school program run by the Monett Area YMCA at Central Park Elementary School. Caiden Doty, left, and Lance Anderson painted planets for a mobile they made at the end of the week. Erick Urbina, at rear, was painting a ring for a planet. Layla Minton, program coordinator, said participants worked on a variety of science/technology/engineering/math (STEM) projects through the week, such as trying to leave prints in moon dust, demonstrating gravity and building a working telescope. The after-school program runs weekdays from 2:30-5:45 p.m.. Murray Bishoff/times-news@monett-times.com
