The Sun, giver of life and maker of really good ice tea, is the focus of Lindsay Wildlife Museum’s new program, “Hands-On Sun Science.”
As part of the ten-day Bay Area Science Festival, the program will run 12 – 4 p.m., Sun., Oct. 26, at the Lindsay Wildlife Museum, 1931 First Ave., Walnut Creek.
Participants will explore the fascinating science of Earth’s own star—the Sun, through hands-on activities presented in partnership with Mount Diablo Astronomical Society.
Learn how bees dance to tell other bees where the nectar and pollen are, and how bees use the sun to give the best travel directions. Watch live honey bees do their own ‘waggle’ dance and take care of the hive in the museum’s “Hive Alive! Exhibit” with its very active, real live bees complete with a queen. Then, have fun dancing the honey bee ‘waggle’—to music!
