Science Friday’s Science Club is back with a new challenge. Your mission is to teach us about what THE SUN does, is, or how it affects your life—using text, photos, video, or song. Science Club founding members Ariel Zych and Charles Bergquist describe the project, and how you can participate at home or in your classroom. And keep tabs on the buzz using the hashtag #ExplainTheSun.
