Thank you for following along with Cranbrook Institute of Science - we’re glad you’re here! 

This month, we invite you to learn about summer camps, what’s happening in the night sky ⭐, and the importance of STEM education in Michigan classrooms. 

And if you’re looking for your next science and natural history adventure - schedule your next visit to the Institute of Science.
Summer Explore Camps 
July 5 - August 20, 2021 | Students entering grades K-4 in fall 2021
Campers will enjoy activities, experiments, and investigations as they become ecologists, geologists, physicists, and more during our in-person camps. Or join us for our virtual camps, The Science of Michigan or Science Goes to the Movies, where we’ll build models of mighty bridges, learn how to identify plants native to Michigan, uncover why popcorn pops, demystify movie magic, and so much more.
Celestial events to watch for this month 
June 10: ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE - A partial solar eclipse will be visible in southeast Michigan beginning at 5:55am, reaching its peak at 5:58am, and ending at 6:37am. 

June 20: SUMMER SOLSTICE - On this day the Sun reaches its highest and northernmost points in the sky, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also the longest day of the year! 

June 24: FULL MOON - In the evening, just after sunset, look towards the southeast to watch the Full Moon rise. June’s Full Moon is traditionally called the Strawberry Moon. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this name has been used by Algonquin, Ojibwe, Dakota, and Lakota peoples, among others, to mark the ripening of “June-bearing” strawberries that are ready to be gathered.
