  Description Students get excited about science when they hear "black holes." In this session we will consider different types of galaxies, the black holes at their centers, and what would happen if you "fell" into a black hole. Participants will receive materials about black holes, take part in hands-on activities, and learn interesting information that can be used in science classrooms (particularly physics and astronomy classes) to draw students into great physics topics using space as the stage. Materials are provided by NASA.
