Can you name all of the bodies that make up the Solar System? By the end of this class you will! In this class, students take a closer look at all the bodies that make up our Solar System, including: planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and dwarf planets. Students will also gain a better understanding of why Pluto is no longer classified as a planet and the characteristics needed to be called a planet. We will also analyse, how our star, the Sun emits light through nuclear fusion.
This class is great for students in Years 9 - 11 who are studying Physics at the GCSE or equivalent level.
