Make a Light-Up Solar Eclipse Paper Circuit!

On Monday, April 8, 2024, people in our area and across North America will get to experience the wonder of a solar eclipse.

In this workshop with STEAM author Kathy Ceceri, kids and teens learn how an eclipse occurs, find out what to expect when it happens, and then make their own light-up eclipse simulation.

Younger kids can make a Light-up Corona that glows when you squeeze the moon. Older kids and teens can create a Moon Slider Switch to turn on the corona’s light show at the moment of totality.

Kathy’s books of science and technology projects for young readers include Paper Inventions and Making Simple Robots, 2nd Edition.

Many of Kathy Ceceri’s books are available through the MHLS: search.midhudsonlibraries.org
