A Mechanical Solar System!

by  Serres Super Science Team - S.S.S.T.

Description :

The Serres Super Science Team – S.S.S.T crafted an amazing model of the solar system, that spins with the handmade gears hidden in its base! Aristotle would be surprised to see the Sun in the center and the Earth spinning around hehe.

Serres Super Science Team - S.S.S.T.

We live in the camp of Serres in Central Macedonia Greece and we are 7 to 11 years old. We come from Afghanistan, Iraq , Syria and recently new classmates from Ukraine joined our science group. We have a Science Lab where we learn about different natural phenomena, about our solar system and space in general. In addition, we perform physics and chemistry experiments and handcrafts based on STEAM. For the purpose of the Science United Festival our team name is S.S.S.T. The initials of letters mean S for Serres as we want to clarify the location where the science project takes place, the second S is for Super purpose as we see every child as a superhero , the third S is for science as through science we can comprehend easier the world around us and the last letter T is for our team that we built through collaboration and the acceptance of each other.
We hope that you enjoy our project,

Hello s.s.s.t,

what a nice and amazing model of our solar system! We also love astronomy and we have a model in our class and we love when we see yours with the gears. You all you become great astronomers and do not forget to look for the stars!

We learned how the solar system moves with a fantastic experiment! It seems really easy but also really amazing!
Thank you s.s.s.t.!!

Team S.S.S.T.......I don't know where to start. Do I start commending you on the beautiful solar system that you crafted using these amazing colors, or should I applaud you for being so innovative with your team name. Or should I be so proud that this is such a diverse group of students from all over the world. Guess what!!! I'll do all of that and so much more. You all deserve a big round of applause. I can't wait to see what you all accomplish in the future. Good luck!!!

The SSST team just showed us a great design of how amazing our solar system is. And yes, they did prove Aristotle wrong! This is truly a great design, I am so proud of your hard work and dedication. The world is looking forward to seeing the future of the SSST team. They gathered from the most amazing places in the world and now are making impressive experiments together.

S.S.S.T.! It was very exciting to see the gears that you collaborated to build so that we could watch the planets spinning around the sun! I appreciated the detail and care you all took painting the planets, the sun, and the box that held the gears. An important part of science is sharing your work with the public. Deciding what to say, who will speak, and then making the video is a lot of work and you all did a wonderful job! Our world is in good hands with scientists like you! Continue your studies and striving to find answers to your questions. High praise to every one of you!
