UPDATE: There have been some challenges this spring, but, happily, we have arranged to host Solar Week during May 18-22nd, 2015. Mark your calendars!
Solar Week, a week of online curriculum, games and activities about the Sun for grades 5-9, happens twice a year, approximately mid-to-late March and mid-to-late October.
