Celebrate the Sun with Riverbend Astronomy Club

August 7, 2021 @ 9:30 am 12:30 pm

Come to the Children’s Museum in Edwardsville, IL to explore our closest star, the Sun!  At Celebrate the Sun, we will have telescopes available for safe sun viewing and have stations set up outside for some hands-on demonstrations explaining how our Sun provides energy to the Earth.  We will play a card game to see how the sun helps us get food, and powers our homes and cars.  We will even make some special bracelets that remind us why sunscreen is important to protect our skin from harmful rays! 

Date: Saturday, 8/7/2021
Time: 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM Central
