Supporting STEM Education in Northern New Mexico
Join us to celebrate the first anniversary of The Great American Total Solar Eclipse with a special children’s story time and presentation! First, we'll read Misty Carty’s new title, Where did the Sun go?: The Great American Total Solar Eclipse with amazing pictures captured from the path of totality in Casper, WY. Then, we'll learn about how eclipses occur using fun solar system inflatables, an Earth/Moon orrery, and scale Earth and Moons to make our own solar eclipses. Lastly, we'll make some fun eclipse art. We hope you can join the fun!
