Sun-Earth Day 2004
The NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum hosts this website. The annual Sun-Earth Day for 2004 has selected the transit of Venus as this year's theme. Opportunities are available to prepare for the viewing of the event. This website has been developed to provide the necessary resources and opportunities for participation in our fourth Sun-Earth Day. The goal is to involve as much of the student population and the public in this event as possible and to help them understand the immense importance and excitement surrounding this and previous transits. Through engaging activities focused on US and world history, music, technology, math, and astronomy, classrooms and museums can create their own event or participate in one of the opportunities the Forum makes available.
