Family ASTRO: Race to the Planets

The Race to the Planets Leader Kit is the second release in our series of family events and activities on topics in astronomy for Family ASTRO Event Leaders. It allows you to take your Astronomy Event participants on a hands-on tour of the Solar System. The fun Race to the Planets game (the corresponding Take-Home Activity) allows players to test their knowledge of the Solar System and explore its many intriguing worlds.
