Nanogirl: Star Science

Nanogirl wants to find 100 friends to do science experiments with her to prove that no matter who you are or what your education level, you can always have fun with science.

Day 7:

Amelie draws the solar system from memory!

Amelie is 4 and I think she is incredible, the first time I met her she told me that she was the planet Jupiter which was her favourite planet, she said that I could be Saturn.

Tonight I went over to see Amelie and she drew me a picture of the solar system, from memory!  She then guided me through the whole drawing starting on the left with the planetoid Pluto with an ice belt, then we have Nepture, Uranus and Saturn (with the rings around it), Jupiter (Amelie's favourite planet) then an astroid belt, Mars, Earth (where we live), Venus and Mercury (which is a grey/orange colour) and finally on the right we have the Sun which is shooting out solar rays!

Yes, she is 4, yes she did this from memory, yes I was very impressed!
