SPACE DAY 2010
When we lived in Spartanburg before, we really didn't have school age children. Now that we are back in Spartanburg and have children that age, we have found that Spartanburg and Greenville offer some great things for kids, if you know where to look! Saturday, March 13 was SPACE DAY 2010 at Roper Mountain Science Center. Since the boys have been studying space at our homeschool co-op (and since we will continue to study Astronomy through the end of the year), I thought this would be a great family activity. As you can see, Roper Mountain Science Center boasts an observatory, which on this day, allowed you to look at the sun. Roper Mountain Science Center has night programs called Starry Skies, where they are currently studying and observing the planet Mars!
