Gateway Science Museum

Celebrate the Perseid Meteor shower as we discover where meteors come from, why we have annual meteor showers, and other fascinating facts about our solar system!

  • Impacts: Join us as we create and study craters with our own simulation of a meteor shower. Discover the tools used to find and observe craters on the moon and other planets and what the craters can reveal about its history and composition.
  • Pocket Solar Systems: Explore the size and scale of our solar system as we learn about the size of the planets and their position in relation to one another. Take home a pocket-size model of our place in space!
  • Objects in Orbit: Experiment with different size and weighted balls to investigate how changing conditions can cause phenomena like stellar wobble and planet formation.
