On August 21, 2017, for the first time since 1979, the sun, the moon, and the earth will line up in a row, causing a total solar eclipse to occur. Prepare for this spectacular event in a special astronomy workshop exploring the electromagnetic spectrum, the stars, and the moon. Build your own spectroscope and learn how to break apart light using this fascinating tool; assemble a personal solar viewer to help you safely view the eclipse on the 21st; and answer your burning questions about eclipses, stars, light, and more!

This workshop is appropriate for ages 8 and up.

Tickets, $8 for Franklin Institute Members $30 for non-members, are available by calling 215.448.1200 and selecting option 4. Tickets include museum admission. Details here: bit.ly/2sEHm6O
