September Equinox - The First Day of Fall
"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree." - Emily Brontë
The first day of Autumn ushers us into nature's gallery that is filled with vibrant and muted colors layered in blankets of creme to crimson spiced with variations of marigold and marmalades. We wrap ourselves in the insulating warmth of a knitted blanket while sipping steaming cup of cocoa that fights to stay warm in the crisp, cool morning air. These are the days that we see, touch, hear, smell and taste STEM.
Today also carries with it the uniqueness of being the Autumnal Equinox. Today, the Sun shines directly on the Equator and the day and evening are nearly equal in length. Below is a link to EarthSky.org and they provide an excellent explanation of this unique time of year. Also, take a moment to learn more about the STEM of the Season by visiting STEM Starter "Falling into STEM," available October 1st. We provide STEM Experiment activities that are uniquely created to celebrate the STEM that occurs this time of year. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
God Bless and STEM on!
