Digital Family Summit
The Digital Family Summit is a place where tweens/teens and parents at all levels of digital activity can come together to learn and grow as individuals and as a family. We’re as concerned as you are about digital safety, kids’ privacy, and online bullying, and we explore those topics at the Summit, but equally so, we are making digital creation and engagement a healthy, fun, expressive activity that encourages kids to share: with their parents as well as with their friends. For tickets please visit http://digitalfamilysummit2013.eventbrite.com/. For more information on scheduling please visit http://www.digitalfamilysummit.com/schedule/

Observe the Moons Night
The Maryland Science Center will have moons on the mind Friday, October 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., inviting visitors to the rooftop observatory for Observe the Moons Night – a free, multi-moon observation extravaganza in honor of “International Observe the Moon Night” on Saturday, October 12.
Earth’s moon will not be the only one in visitors’ sights at the Maryland Science Center. With help from Maryland Science Center staff, guest scientists from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab and state-of-the-art observatory equipment including the computer-powered Clark Telescope, visitors can get up-close looks at Earth’s moon and the four largest moons of Jupiter while enjoying moon-related activities and insight from experts.
Dedicated observers will be in for a treat at 12:33 a.m. when they can witness a rare triple shadow transit on Jupiter – when three of Jupiter’s moons pass between the face of the planet and the Sun, causing shadows on Jupiter.
