Join us outside on the boardwalk as we celebrate the solar eclipse! Wear a pair of special eclipse-viewing glasses, and watch as the moon partially covers the sun. Draw the different stages and record your observations, and make a model that shows how the Earth orbits the Sun and the Moon travels around the Earth — all this and more to celebrate the eclipse!
Boston Children's Museum is excited to be able to provide a supply of special eclipse viewing glasses provided by #popscope and the American Astronomical Society. Because of anticipated interest in the event, our expectation is that the glasses will be shared and recycled amongst our visitors, just like going to see a movie with 3D glasses. There will be other activities happening outside at this time, including making an eclipse model, pinhole viewers, and recording observations. We're excited for the solar eclipse, and hope to see you at BCM on Monday!
