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.
