Afterschool 4-H: Solar Eclipses & Eclipse Glasses

March 15, 2024, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Afterschool 4-H: Solar Eclipses & Eclipse Glasses

On Friday, March 15 at 2 pm in the library’s Riverview Room: Leah McCluskey, staff from 4-H, will share information about solar eclipses, along with guiding participants to create miniature models of a solar eclipse using foam balls and wire.  Kids ages 5 and up are invited.   Everyone will also get eclipse glasses to take home!  On April 8, 2024, parts of Maine will experience a total solar eclipse, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! A total solar eclipse happens when the moon lies exactly between the sun and the Earth, casting its shadow on a small patch of the Earth’s surface.

This program is made possible through support from NASA’s Science Activation program through the Learning Ecosystems Northeast partnership.

Every third Friday of the month a 4-H educator will be leading an exciting activity in the Riverview Room from 2:00 – 3:30 PM. If you have any questions, contact Youth Services Librarian Keli Gancos at kgancos@ellsworthlibrary.net or call (207) 667-6363.
