AstroKids Constellation Challenge

March 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - March 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Submissions Now Open Through Friday, March 19

AstroKids, we are challenging YOU to get creative by making your very own constellation!

Using the Star Chart linked below, create your own constellation, just as people have done throughout history! Connect at least 2, but no more than 10, stars in the star chart we’ve provided to create a picture of anything you want. It can be an animal, a person, or an object.

Send in your constellation to the Museum Team and they will select a few to be featured in a special virtual planetarium sky tour at the AstroKids Virtual Space Party on March 26 (Click HERE for party info).

How to participate:

Print out the star chart to draw lines connecting the stars in your constellation.
Use a program like MS Paint to digitally draw lines on the star chart.

Give your constellation a name, describe what your constellation is, and write a short story all about it! Check that your text is legible or typed.

Take a picture of your work or scan the document and email it back to us with your constellation name and story.
