Explore the science of the solstice
Let's look at the STEM topics you can cover when exploring both a solstice and equinox.
Shakespeare was captivated by the magic of the solstice, delighting older children and adults alike with the characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and you can engage your class with the rich array of STEM topics to explore from sun, space, seasons and more.
