The Strange Shape of Sundials
(8-Adult) Learn about the many kinds of sundials and make your own. Sundials are the world's oldest clocks, seen in alignments of Stonehenge and Newgrange. Ben Franklin had exploding sundials, and Thomas Jefferson built a new type of sundial. Today there are many new sundials. Did you ever see a digital sundial? As an activity, we'll help you make your own paper sundial that tells accurate time.
The course will be held in the Roll-Top Observatory classroom, followed by telescope observing of the sun. The program at Turner Farm Park runs from 1 to 2 p.m.
The cost is $8 per person. For more information, call Riverbend Park at 703-759-9018.
