Solar Launch Ceremony & Solar Saturday

Sat May 21, 2022
9:00am to 2:00pm ET
Included with admission

Visit the Discovery Museum to explore the endless possibilities of solar energy! Try out some simple experiments to see the sun’s energy in action, go on a sun scavenger hunt, and explore how solar panels help us turn the sun’s energy into electricity. 

Activities and locations may change depending on the weather.

At 11:00am there will be a special Solar Launch Ceremony announcing the Discovery Museum’s conversion to solar electricity, produced on site through the museum's new, 326kW solar canopy. Discovery Museum looks forward to celebrating this milestone for the region and a first among children’s museums nationally!
