UPDATE: Solar Week is back! Fall 2016 and spring 2017 will highlight safe solar viewing and the Aug. 21 2017 Total Solar Eclipse -- as well as the usual cool facts about the Sun-Earth connection, and conversations with leading solar scientists. We also have some brand new Videos, featuring past Solar Week scientists and others who study the Sun!

Solar Week, a week of online cool facts, games and activities about the Sun for ages 9-14, happens twice a year, approximately mid-to-late March and mid-to-late October. [Daily Facts, Games and Activities are available all year; "Ask a Question" has archived answers only -- until LIVE during Solar Week.]

Are you a group leader, teacher or home schooler? Fill out our survey, we'd love your feedback on Solar Week!
