Join the Children’s Science Explorium at Sugar Sand Park on August 21st to view the celestial event of the century: the Great American Eclipse. This will be the first total eclipse in the contiguous United States since 1979. While not in the path of totality, Boca Raton will still be treated to an impressive partial eclipse view. Guests can drop by the Explorium anytime between 2-4:30pm for free science demonstrations, solar eclipse-model make & takes, and solar eclipse glasses for safe viewing (while supplies last).
“This is a great opportunity for the public to witness a once-in-a-generation event,” states Explorium Curator Kate Lasher. “The Explorium staff has made it easy for families to stop in after school and immerse themselves into something they will most likely never forget.”
A solar filter will also be attached to the Explorium’s professional-grade 16” Meade Cassegrain telescope for an additional, unique viewing experience. In the event of poor weather, the Explorium will live stream the event, and all other activities will still take place.
