NASA Invites Students to Study the Sun During Solar Week

solar week logoTwice a year, Solar Week provides a weeklong series of web-based educational activities for classrooms about our magnetic variable star, the sun, and its interactions with Earth and the solar system.

Each day of Solar Week, Oct. 18 – 22, 2010, offers a different set of lessons and games for students ranging from the upper elementary to high school level. The site covers everything from solar radiation to pursuing careers in science. Solar Week is ideal for students studying the solar system, the stars, or astronomy in general. It’s also for students wondering what it’s like being a scientist, and pondering possible career choices. For those who miss this week, the activities remain online all year around, but the scientists won’t be available again to answer questions online until next March.For more information about Solar
