Michigan Science Center Solar Eclipse


Expanded distance learning capabilities showcase total solar eclipse

What: Solar Eclipse Celebration - On August 21, North America will experience a solar eclipse. To celebrate, MiSci is hosting a whole day of programming revolving around the sun, space, and science. Space enthusiasts can get hands-on with space and Earth concepts and participate in activities, such as making clouds, investigating gravity, exploring icy worlds and learning about research at NASA.

Visitors can watch the total solar eclipse throughout the entire day as MiSci live streams the event in the new Toyota Engineering 4D Theater. The theater will be open to all visitors on Eclipse Day and is included with paid general admission. Or, guests can join amateur astronomers outside the Science Center to experience the partial eclipse safely.

MiSci will also be playing the NASA-funded planetarium show, Sunstruck, in the Dassault Systèmes Planetarium. The film takes viewers to the beginning of time to experience the birth of the sun, to discover how it came to support life, how it threatens life as we know it, and how its energy will one day fade away.

Additionally, MiSci is taking the Smithsonian’s Spark!Lab to space as guests are challenged to design homes, cities, and other new technologies to help them live in different parts of space.

When: Aug. 21 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
            In Detroit, the partial eclipse will begin at 1:03 p.m. and end at 3:47 p.m.

What: Additional Space Programming - Using the new Toyota Engineering 4D Theater and as part of ECHO, MiSci’s new distance learning program, visitors will hear from NASA integration engineer and project manager, Karma Snyder, as MiSci live streams her in to the Engineering 4D Theater from the NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Mississippi. Snyder has worked at NASA for nearly 17 years, and served as a senior design engineer on the liquid rocket engine team for the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission.

When: Aug. 16 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Family Game Night Wizard Roll

I have loved playing board games since I was little. My husband and ten-year-old share my love for board games. Last night we had family game night and played Wizard Roll! We had a blast!

Family Game Night Wizard Roll

Wizard Roll is a super simple but fun game. The object of the game is to make magic spells, but oh it's not that easy. If someone rolls a wand, they can zap you, and you lose some or all of the pieces you have collected to make your magic spell. This is what makes the game fun. We were all laughing and giggling.

Each player is dealt two cards. Each card has a number assigned to it. The higher the number, the harder the spell. You will need 7 or more points to win this game. You take turns rolling the dice to collect items that you need for your spell. If you end up with a bad roll and can't use anything that you rolled you have to offer one of the items on the die to another player. The round ends when a person collects his or her spell. It will take more than one round for the game to end.

See the above smiling faces? Well, that's because my girl's are enjoying the Brooklyn Bean flavored variety coffees. Yes, I allow my girls to indulge in the occasional coffee treat but here is where this mama is smart. Instead of taking them to the store for a $5 overpriced drink we can make coffee treats at home for under a buck.

Auburn Hills, are you ready for the newest Aqua-Tots swim school? Well, it's coming to your neighborhood soon. So make sure you get your swimsuits ready because we've got some good times headed your way! Safety first, fun every second!

Aqua-Tots swim school believes in safety first. I love how they believe in education, swimming is truly a life long skill that you carry with you.

Aqua-Tots swim schools start lessons at 4 months of age. I think this is fabulous because it gets children used to the water at an early age. I believe I started my youngest in swim lessons at 6 months. Let me tell you she's a mermaid. She's always in our pool.

Aqua-Tots doesn't stop there. They have a place for all swimming levels even the advanced because learning is actually life-long.
