The Great 4-H LEGO CHALLENGE
  • Space Age:
    • Created by Ms. Tonya Bain in Crockett County
    • You know your age on Earth, but what about on other planets?  Use the Chart below to calculate your “Space Age”.
    • One year is the length of time it takes a planet to make a complete orbit around the sun.  On Earth, the orbit is 365 days.  Some orbits are shorter, while others are longer.  The reason for this is due to the distance the planet is from the sun.  This is why your age is different on each planet!
      • Example:
        • Astronaut Sam is 25 on Earth!  What is his age on Mars?
        • 25 x .53 = 13.25 years old
      • Mercury
        • One Year = 4.15 Earth Years
        • Operation = multiply
        • “My Age”
        • How Old Am I?
          • Multiply “My Age” times 4.15
      • Venus
        • One Year = 1.62 Earth Years
        • Operation = multiply
        • “My Age”
        • How Old Am I?Multiply “My Age” times 1.62
      • Mars
        • One Year = 0.53 Earth Years
        • Operation = multiply
        • “My Age”
        • How Old Am I?Multiply “My Age” times 0.53
      • Jupiter
        • “My Age”
        • Operation – Divide
        • One Year = 11.862 Earth Years
        • How Old Am I?
          • Divide “My Age” by 11.862
      • Saturn
        • “My Age”
        • Operation – Divide
        • One Year = 29.456 Earth Years
        • How Old Am I?
          • Divide “My Age” by 29.456
      • Uranus
