    Hi all,

    We are planning some special programs leading up to the Eclipse here in Cleveland. We primarily serve an audience age 0-8 and their caregivers. Here are some ideas we already have in the works, but would love to hear other ideas as well! 

    How Does An Eclipse Work?

    The sun is much bigger than the moon, so how can the moon block the sun? Join us as we discover how eclipses are possible through demonstrations and make a corona craft. 

    Pinhole Projectors

    How can we watch the eclipse if looking at the sun is dangerous? We will learn how to make pinhole projectors out of household objects so we can safely watch the eclipse.

    Sundials

    Before there were clocks, people used the sun and sundials to tell the time. Join us to learn about the sun and make your own sundial to take home!

    Moon Craters

    Did you know that the moon isn't smooth? Join us to learn why the moon has so many craters and make your own crater-filled moon to take home!

    Kelsey,

    You have a nice set of activities planned.  You will find great resources on the NSTA Solar Eclipse webpage at http://nsta.org/eclipse/. I recommend looking through the "Collection" link on the webpage (scroll down to find the Collection page).  There is an especially useful list of free eclipse-related activities found on the internet.

    All the best for clear skies and a great view of the eclipse.

    Dennis

    "White Kush" is an intriguing strain known for its potent effects and distinct flavor profile. Combining the relaxing properties of White Widow with the sedative qualities of Kush, this hybrid offers a balanced experience sought after by both recreational and medicinal users. Its dense, resinous buds emit a pungent aroma with earthy undertones, promising a flavorful smoke or vaporization session. With its reported ability to alleviate stress, pain, and insomnia, White Kush has garnered a loyal following within the cannabis community. However, as with any strain, individual experiences may vary, so it's essential to start with a low dosage and gradually increase as needed.
