Join the Solarbration at Tellus Science Museum

Saturday, Oct. 10

10 am – 8 pm

This Saturday is a Solarbration at Tellus! Come tour the Solar Decathlon House, the newest addition to Tellus. The Solar House was built by Georgia Institute of Technology faculty and students for an international competition and is designed to be self-sufficient.
Tours of the house will be led by the Georgia Tech students involved in the building of the house. In addition, children’s activities will be ongoing inside the museum; a new planetarium show, “Heart of the Sun” premieres with showings throughout the day; movies of the Solar House will be showing in the theater; and weather permitting, our observatory will be open with our telescope pointed at the sun!
The Solarbration continues at 7 pm with the Tellus Lecture Series presenting Jason Brown and Lane Duncan, both from Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture. Brown worked on the Solar House and Duncan works with Green Habitats, a non-profit that promotes green living.
Solarbration is free for members and included with paid admission for not-yet members.

Natural History of Bats Start the Halloween season early with bat biologist and
Tellus volunteer Dr. Jackie Belwood as she explores the
fascinating world of bats at 7 pm on Friday, Oct. 23. The lecture is free for members and covered in the cost of admission for not-yet members.
