As part of NASA's Sun-Earth Day "Celebrate the Equinox" the Sun Earth Connection Education Forum with host Paul Mortfield, a Stanford Solar Center Astronomer, will be joined by students at NASA AMES Research Center to share the the results of activities designed to learn more about the Sun. You can participate in those same Grade-specific activities: Grade K-3, 3-5, Grade 6-8 and Grade 9-12.
This year's webcast will begin with an explanation of the
Lakota celebration of the Equinox at Harney Peak, South Dakota. This introduction
will include Lakota
cultural parallels to the science of the Sun. We will also hear
from astronauts about the effects of the Sun on space travel. Guest
