Solstices, Time Zones, and Axial Tilt: Why Do We Have Seasons?

August 3, 2015 @ 12:00 am PDT

Why is winter cold and summer hot? Why do we turn our clocks back and then forward again? How can it be different times in different places? We will look at the natural phenomena of seasons from a planetary perspective. We will explore solar light, and planetary orbits as we spring forward.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
