Solar Science Day

Tuesday, July 2nd @ 11:00 am. 

One of the best parts of summer is having a cookout, and for lots of people one of the best parts of a cookout is hot dogs. They’re so versatile! You can cook them in the microwave, boil them on the stove, heat them in the toaster oven, grill them on gas or charcoal, or even just cook them on a stick over the campfire. Today we’re going to look a little further away than the kitchen or the backyard to put the hot in our dogs. About 93 million miles away. Today, with the help of some reused supplies, we’re going to cook our hot dogs with the sun!
