Children’s Solar Eclipse Workshop (Evans Mills)

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Sci-Tech Center of Northern New York will hold solar eclipse workshops at various area libraries, in preparation for the upcoming April 8, 2024 Total Eclipse. These free, hour-long, hands-on programs, are designed for children ages 8 through 12.

The programs will talk about and demonstrate the astronomical science behind an eclipse, while emphasizing how to protect ones eyes and view it safely. Children will make their own safe viewing projection boxes to take home, and will also be provided with 4 pairs of safe viewing glasses, for their use as well as for family or friends.

In addition, children will also put together their own solar clock, a sun dial to take home. If weather permits, the projection boxes, viewing glasses, and sun dials may be tried under the actual Sun light.

There is no charge for the workshop, and all materials will be provided. However, space is limited to 25 children so reservations are required. Email [email protected] or call during library hours 315.629.4483.
