Basic Investigations with the Orbiter are:

  • How the earth’s rotation causes day and night
  • How the earth’s revolution around the sun and the tilt of its axis causes seasons
  • Why the sun rises in the east and sets in the west
  • Why there is a midnight sun
  • Why there are eclipses and More!
Numerous study project and experiments may be conducted with Orbiters to expand interest and increase knowledge of the subject. Several ideas and projects are suggested. Study Guide Included.
