After creating most papercrafts, kids are simply left with a decorative object to remind them of their skill—but not with this science paper craft. Once assembly of the Planetarium Kit is completed, kids are left with a working at-home device that projects the stars of the night sky onto walls.

The set challenges kids to take on the role of an engineer as they construct parts that will be essential to the success of seeing a simulation of the stars at the end of the project. For the most part, only a few household items are required to put together the craft, in addition to the cardboard, paper and plastic that are included in the kit.
