Build an Earth-Moon Scale Model

How big is the Moon? How far away from Earth is it? How long does it take to get to the Moon?

In this STEM presentation and activity, we'll answer these questions. Each student will be given materials to build and paint their own scale model of the Earth and Moon that they can take home.

At the end of the activity, we'll safely look at the Moon and Sun through the telescope. Then we'll look at the Sun in augmented reality to get a true sense of its size.

  • Length: 1 hour
  • Ages: 6+
  • Price: $150
  • Materials: $1.50 / student
  • Location: in-person in Montréal (also available as a remote presentation for a reduced price)

About the Presenter

My name's Trevor, and I'm the host of Plateau Astro! 

In 2018, I began Plateau Astro to teach people of all ages what we can see in the urban night sky. Since then, I've given dozens of presentations – remote and in-person.

Trevor Kjorlien

In 2019, I became the English host of National Geographic Observetoiles in Sutton, Quebec. Here, I present to over 200 people teaching them about the night sky in an outdoor planetarium.

When COVID-19 began in March 2020, I began doing live streams on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram about space and astronomy. Over 100 hours of live streaming later, remote teaching is now fun and natural to me. 

I guarantee: your group will have fun and learn something new.
