How can we see just how immense our solar system is? Well, Miss Hanks’ Earth Systems class figured out a way. They built a scale model in the front foyer of the school and lined up the planets in relation to the sun. They used science and math to form the scale model from actual distances of those planets. The students were able to do and see for themselves the colossal size of our piece of the universe.
