If it's free - it's for ME! That's what our friend Michelle Heart always said and now I wanted to spread the word. We finish out the Western Idaho Fair week this weekend and have just added a twist.

The Western Idaho Fair opens on Friday and KBOI-TV with Idaho STEM Action Center's gift of free Solar Eclipse sunglasses.

How do I get these glasses?

There is free entry to the opening of the Western Idaho Fair from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. thanks to KBOI-TV and that's when you'll be able to get those coveted Solar Eclipse sunglasses. This is a first come first served type of deal. How many glasses will be available? A LOT!

5000 Solar Eclipse sunglasses will be available for the first 5000 in the door. I wouldn't expect to grab ten pairs for everyone in your dorm room either. I'm sure it's one per person. When they're out - no more.

They will also have a lot of things for the kids from STEMBusUSA like:

  • Building bristlebots for kids that wanna get creative.
  • Operating robots.
  • Construct LEGO(R) Creations.
  • Explore the world of virtual reality.
  • Participate in a STEM scavenger hunt for prizes.
