P6/7M were visited today by Sam and Asleigh from the UHI STEM team. They delivered an interesting workshop where we had to create the planets in our solar system to scale using Plasticine and work out the distance of the planets from the Sun with toilet paper (1 sheet represented 50000000km). It was very eye opening to see how big/small planets are in comparison with one another and the huge distances between them.
