Celebrate Solar Week -- Fall 2012

Solar Week provides a weeklong series of Web-based educational classroom activities and games with a focus on the sun-Earth connection geared for upper elementary, middle and high school students. Students learn about solar careers, sunspots and solar storms through a series of activities, games and lessons.

Solar Week is ideal for students studying the solar system, the stars and astronomy in general. Students will also learn about solar scientists and other science career choices. The website is for all students, but it is especially designed to spark the interest of pre- and early-teen girls with activities and online interaction with leading female scientists at the forefront of sun-Earth research.

To learn more and to register to participate, visit http://www.solarweek.org.
