Science Smart Kids: Solstices and Equinoxes | SJPL | Online

January 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Things to do for kids, tweens, teens and families at the library.

This program was paid for with the generous support to the Friends of the Almaden Library. Science Smart Kids presents Solstices and Equinoxes, a hands-on STEAM workshop for ages 5 to 12. Children will learn about the orbit planets, Earth’s axis, winter and summer solstices, and fall and spring equinoxes. We will also explore their spiritual significance in ancient cultures and even in todays world. Each attendee will create a scientific diagram that explains why winter and summer solstices, and fall and spring equinoxes happen. Supplies needed: Paper (printer paper will do), PDF of solstice diagram (will be emailed to librarians later) pencil, and markers. Registration is required to receive a link and password. Deadline to sign-up will be 1 hour before the program begins. Links and passwords will be emailed at least 30 minutes before the program. The virtual room will open 3 minutes before the program begins. We do recommend everyone “arrive” at least 10 minutes before the program to ensure you are able to enter the “room”. If you do not receive an email with the program link at least 30 minutes before the program begins, please check your spam and other folders.

For those under 18 years of age who may be joining us, we recommend that a parent/legal guardian be with you during the meeting.
