Boy Scout STEM-bo-ree
It was a “sun-filled” day 😉 at the Boy Scout Lone Star Council STEM-bo-ree Saturday.
We looked at the Sun and had the chance to catch a big ‘ole sunspot!
We learned about the upcoming transit of Mercury and how big Mercury would be if we shrunk the Sun down to the size you see in the photo below.
We made pinhole projectors to safely view the Sun. Some kids got really creative with their projections! My favorite part of the day was when they got creative and started to make patterns out of their pinhole projectors.
