Take a stroll through the solar system as we explore each unique planet using Science on a Sphere. Participants will make their own pocket solar system!
August 16, 2 PM - Solar Eclipse 101
With the 2017 solar eclipse right around the corner we will be discussing the science of eclipses and how to properly observe the celestial event. Participants will create their own solar eclipse viewing box.
Join us on Monday, August 21 (12:00 - 4:30 PM) and experience a rare and breathtaking scene of the 2017 solar eclipse! We will learn about how an eclipse takes place through games, hands on activities, crafts, and visual presentations. Participants will have the opportunity to make a solar eclipse viewing box or pick up a pair of solar eclipse glasses (while supplies last) and learn from our staff how to safely view this amazing phenomenon. We will also be live streaming the path of totality as the eclipse makes its way across the US.
