Have you ever taken a close look at the Moon and wondered how it got to be so bumpy, instead of being smooth? As part of McGill’s Bicentennial and 24 Hours of Science, come find out with AstroMcGill + PhysicsMatters' Craters activity! Kids of ages about 8 to 12 are all welcome to this highly interactive, online learning session where we will make our own craters and find out why they come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. All experiments use only common household objects, listed in this document.

This event will take place on May 8th, 1-2pm, on Zoom. To register your child, please fill out this form. The Zoom link will be provided upon submitting the form.

Any questions? Feel free to write to us at astromcgill@physics.mcgill.ca

En regardant de près la Lune, vous êtes-vous déja demandé pourquoi elle était bosselée, et non lisse? Dans le cadre du Bicentennaire de McGill et des 24 Heures de Science, venez explorer la question avec l'activité Cratères des équipes AstroMcGill et PhysicsMatters! Les enfants d'environ 8 à 12 ans sont les bienvenus à cette session d’apprentissage interactive en ligne, où nous créerons nos propres cratères et découvrirons pourquoi on les trouve sous une multitude de formes et de grandeurs. Toutes les expériences se feront avec des objets ménagers courants, listés dans ce document.

Cet événement se déroulera sur Zoom le 8 Mai, 12-13h. Pour inscrire votre enfant, veuillez remplir ce formulaire. Le lien Zoom vous sera fourni après avoir soumit le formulaire.

Des questions? Vous pouvez nous écrire à astromcgill@physics.mcgill.ca
