Peer through a telescope to observe the transit through a special sun filter,* learn why what happens on Mercury stays on Mercury, and experiment with chemistry that fuels interplanetary exploration.

  • Send acid/base rockets flying
  • Discover the size of the solar system
  • Check out NASA’s live feed of the event
