Astrobox Fall 2017

Here are the items in the Fall 2017 Astrobox. I ordered this STEM box for J, age 9, as an additional learning tool for his astronomy class. He is beyond excited and can’t wait to check everything out.

Patch and Saturn Charms

We received the International Space Station Expedition 53 Crew Path and two Saturn Charms. J loved learning about the new crew members that launched to the International Space Station on September 13, 2017. He placed the Saturn Charms on his Stitch key chain.

Voyager Metal Earth Model Kit

J can’t wait to assemble the Voyager Metal Earth Model Kit ($9.58). I’m not too sure about my ability to assist him. The Voyager Spacecraft crashed into Saturn on September 15, 2017 ending 20 years of exploring Jupiter and Saturn.

Information

J is fascinating by the gravity-defying Precision Gyroscope ($10.00) which illustrates how spacecraft travel through space.

Saturn From titan by Steven Hobbs

My favorite item is the 8 x 10 print Saturn From Titan by Steven Hobbs. The stunning print shows Saturn and two if its moons through Titan’s atmosphere. It came boarded and wrapped in plastic which I appreciate.

The Photographic Card Deck of the Solar System

J’s favorite item is The Photographic Card Deck of the Solar System by Marcus Chown ($21.87 Amazon). We will be using the 158 cards with amazing pictures and detailed facts throughout the school year and beyond.

Cassini’s Grand Finale

It’s time to say goodbye to Cassini! The super soft 100% polyester American Apparel shirt is not available in children sizes much to J’s dismay. It features a beautiful artist rendition of Cassini entering Saturn’s atmosphere.

J and I loved the 2017 Fall Astrobox. We enjoyed learning about current astronomical events, satellites, Saturn, and the solar system. It’s an excellent box for astronomy fans that are young and young at heart!
