This is part of the new Science in Our Park Series. Come to the Arnold Arboretum and be a scientist! Get your hands onto scientific tools, use your observation skills and share your findings with others.

Catch Some Rays will let you harness the power of the sun. Help to create solar ovens, test the ability of various garden bed coverings to keep roots cool, and plant a sunflower seed that will follow the sun. 

One adult may bring a maximum of three children; suitable for children ages five and up. This is a drop in activity. The event will be taking place on the Hunnewell Lawn inside the main entrance to the Arnold Arboretum.
