Daughter's Solar System Project!


My daughter had a solar system project to do. She knew her dad would get heavily involved, and here is the result! We're both pretty happy with it! I took the opportunity to teach her how to paint things and basically put a project like this together, in stages. She was very interested and it came out nicely. If she doesn't get an "A" then there will be grief! ;-)

That's a nice looking solar system! I'm sure she'll get and A++. :)

I dunno Phil...Is that to scale? :-)

Good looking solar system!

Phil said...

Funny you mention that. I did put a sign on it that read "Not to Scale"!

Hey Phil! This makes me want to build my own Solar System. No doubt in my mind that she'll get an A. Heck, I'd give it an A++ with merit!

How about an extrasolar system?

Regards,

Ewan

Looks great!
If the teacher's a Pluto lover, your A++ might be in jeopardy though :D

Dimitri - I very nearly added Pluto just as a matter of principle ;-) (I am old school). Would have been cool to have added the Oort Cloud, Asteroid belt and Kuiper Belt as well as a few comets, but I ran out of time.
