UPDATE: Good news! Solar Week is coming back in the fall -- October 17-21, 2016 -- with a focus on the 2017 total solar eclipse, informal activities and cool conversations with leading solar scientists. The website will be getting a new look, too. In the meantime, feel free to use the daily pages, and watch this space!
Solar Week, a week of online cool facts, hands-on activities and games 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.]
