UPDATE: Good news! Solar Week is coming back in the fall  -- October 17-21, 2016 -- with a focus on the 2017 total solar eclipse  and cool conversations with leading solar scientists. Look to see us back in action then. 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 curriculum, 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 Curriculum, Games and Activities are available all year; "Ask a Question" has archived answers only -- until LIVE during Solar Week.]

PLEASE REGISTER to participate in Solar Week. Click the "Register" button at right. It's free, it just helps us know whom we're reaching.

Have you checked out NASA Wavelength? Earth and space science resources for educators of all levels! You can also get a LIST of Solar Week resources.

Visit NASA's Sun-Earth Day  for all kinds of Sun-Earth connection materials.
