Meteor Science: Weekly Science Project Idea and Home Science Activity Spotlight

Weekly Science Activity Spotlight / Meteors, Craters, and Astronomy Science Project for School or Family Science

In this week's spotlight: a pair of astronomy science projects perfectly timed for this year's peak Perseids meteor shower activity. Most meteors that pass through the Earth's atmosphere burn up before they hit the ground. But what happens when a meteorite hits? In this pair of hands-on science activities, students and families experiment to find out how the size of a meteorite is related to the size of the resulting crater.
