Need helping comming up with an Astronomy Project - Its open to anything ???

Hey guys,

Man this year in a certain Astronomy Class, our year end project is not on something specific, its wide open.

Anything to do with astronomy: Like, a poster on something certain, but our instructor insisted that we do something creative.

People in the past have built things, done movies, interpreted dance lol, all kinds of stuff.

I want to so something unique. Hoping some of you guys can give me some cool ideas!

Thanks, appreciate it!

Again ANYTHING to do with astronomy!

Make a working scale model of the solar system showing all the orbits of the planets. Now I bet no ones done that for the class before if their 'creativity' leads to dance.

Don't know if it meets the criteria for creative though.

Living in space is a very interesting topic. You could dress up, wrap food in foil etc.Might be too much about human biology though.

I did watch a lecturer years ago demonstrate the wobble seen by stars with planets by holding hands with a much larger person and both spinning round. Might be hard to bulk this out and remain creative.

Maybe you could figure out what dark matter is made of.

So what level is this - is it a high school class, nukeman?

Show galaxies moving away from each other (expansion of universe) by inflation of a balloon.

This is pointless.

The OP hasn't been back here since Feb 8 at 3:37 - 4 minutes after the post was made.
