Izaak Walton League of America  - 3/23

Web Seminar

Join us on Thursday, April 27, 2023, from 7:00 – 8:15 PM ET to learn about two solar eclipses visible from the continental United States in 2023 and 2024.

There will be an annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023 and a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 in the US – an Eclipse Double-Header – with everyone in North America seeing at least a partial eclipse. Learn from veteran astronomers and educators Dennis Schatz and Andrew Fraknoi about where the eclipses will be visible, how to view them safely, what classroom-tested activities are available for your preservice teachers to use in their classrooms, and what NSTA resources are available for your use.  We will also explore ways your preservice teachers, especially those in NSTA Preservice Teacher Chapters, can play a role in providing school or community-wide programming about the eclipses. 

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
