Exploring Science: Earth & Space

Friday, Aug. 18–Monday, Aug. 21: 11am–3pm

All ages 

As we gear up for the eclipse of 2017, get hands-on with science experiments and engage with community scientists and astronomy enthusiasts. On August 18–21, make clouds, imagine what extraterrestrial life might be like, investigate gravity, explore icy worlds, and much more!

Then on August 21, things really heat up as we all watch for the eclipse. Join physicists from the University of Rochester and other astronomy enthusiasts for safe solar viewing. Learn about the commemorative stamp and postmark that has been created by the United States Postal Service. Learn first hand about the ongoing research happening at NASA in the fields of heliophysics, Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics, and get hands-on with Earth and space science concepts.
