Project title: The birth and death of a star, the Sun case
Activity description: Shown here is a project from students of We Speak Science Academy. Students applied knowledge gained in STEM to construct the life cycle of a star. Some of the materials used for this project were: paper, plasteline and cotton.
The following photos illustrate our students’ presentations:
Figs. Shown here the lifecycle of a Star. Stars are created in huge clouds of gas and dust, and they spend the majority of their lives fusing hydrogen gas to helium gas on the main sequence. Red giant stars arise when stars swell to their maximum size. The Sun and other stars die as planetary nebulae and white dwarfs.
Student projects were guided by mentors of The We Speak Science Academy
