Discovery At Home!

All year, we have been learning about science, technology, engineering and math topics. Now that you have a deep understanding of STEM content, you can continue to explore, create, experiment and build at home! There are lots of things to explore that connect with our study of living things and earth materials. Get outside! Exercise is important for your health, and the summer is the perfect time to enjoy activities outdoors. Enjoy eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables!

Stargaze on clear summer nights! See if you can identify common constellations, asterisms, and stars!
 
The next Supermoons will occur on three more dates in 2016 - October 16th, November 14th, and December 14th . The November 14th Supermoon may just be the most exciting one! Not only will it be the closest Supermoon of this year, it will also be the closest Supermoon of the 21st Century thus far! The moon won't come this close to Earth again until the Supermoon on November 25th, 2034!

Look for the planets!
Mercury will be in the dawn sky in June and the dusk sky in August .
Venus will be in the dusk throughout August and September.
Mars will be visible in the evening sky throughout the summer!
