Girls will study the sun and its main output: light. How did the nuclear reaction in our sun begin, what are the zones in the sun, and why do we care? Is there light we can’t see? What is it like? Girls will do hands-on modeling of IR light and ultraviolet light detection, and parts of the sun such as the corona and the chromosphere and photosphere!
If we have good weather we will look at the brighter planets in the sky and also the constellations. Girl Scout Seniors can also work on your Sky badge!

Astronomy-trained program aides: This event is for you, too! Come increase your astronomical knowledge and have some fun helping younger Girl Scouts discover the mysteries of the sky above! We’ll see you out there!
