    How does a star twinkle? The light given off by a star is clear and steady. But most stars are so far away that we see them as only a tiny point of light. When the light reaches Earth, it passes through many layers of air. Some of the layers are cool and some are warm. This STEM/STEAM program will explore atmospheric turbulence and light refraction to discover why stars twinkle. We will also have a blast making galaxy bottles to take home our very own sparkling stars.
