The Visitor Center will provide a variety of hands-on activities through a series of STEM stations where scouts will learn about the Solar System, Earth's Moon, eclipses and the Sun. The event will include solar viewing through telescopes (weather permitting) provided by the Delmarva Space Sciences Foundation. *Registration through the Delmarva Council is required*

The connection and interactions between the sun and Earth drive the seasons, ocean currents, weather, climate, radiation belts and aurorae. With the help of experts from the Delmarva Space Sciences Foundation, safely view the sun through a solar telescope while look for sunspots, solar prominences and flares. Learn about the 2017 total solar eclipse and how you can safely view this rare opportunity. This event will occur regardless of weather, however, solar telescope viewing is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. The STEM in the Sky Astronomy Series is funded in part through the 2015 Competitive Program for Science Museums, Planetariums, and NASA Visitor Centers (CP4SMPVC+)
