Green+Purple=Nebula + education = fun

A nebula is defined as:

an interstellar cloud of gas and dust. The properties of nebulae vary enormously and depend on their composition as well as the environment in which they are situated.

I was trying to recreate an artist representation of a nebula.  The main colours were green and purple.

Purple and green nebula

This piece was 3 layers of resin, creating a multi layered effect.  As we know a nebula is massive, and made from gas.  So, I wanted a smokey effect, depth of view & sparkle to represent stars.  I have found this incredibly hard to photograph- so stay with me…

Jump online and type in ‘Nasa + Crab Nebula” and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

So I leave you with a few questions:

  1. How do you reach your science students?
  2. How do you enthuse students?
  3. How do you let students express themselves artistically?
