Join Erie Downtown Partnership and expERIEnce Children's Museum in Perry Square on April 8th for a Children's Educational Fair for the Total Solar Eclipse! Folks from NASA will be in Erie to teach us all about how the sun and moon cause a solar eclipse and we'll hear from astrophysicist Zach Lewis about the science behind eclipses, the planets, & more. The Children's Museum will have STEAM activities and the Erie County Library Bookmobile will be there with tons of science books. Gannon and Penn State Behrend will be in East Perry Square with a large screen for children to look through in order to see the moon pass over the sun. Activities start at noon and will lead up to totality at 3:16pm - 3:20 pm. Organizers are encouraging attendees to walk, bike, take a shuttle, or carpool to the event to avoid traffic congestion expected during Eclipse Day. Additional parking Downtown on April 8th will be available at Erie Insurance surface parking lots.
