Join us on Thursday, February 8, 2024, from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM ET for an edition of NSTA’s Science Update about the April 8 total solar eclipse.
In this Science Update, the presenters will share the tools that will help you make the eclipse a great experience for your students, your school, and your community. Join veteran astronomers and science educators Dennis Schatz and Andrew Fraknoi to learn about what will happen in April, what you will see in your location, and most importantly, how to view the eclipse safely. Also included will be suggestions for classroom-tested, hands-on activities you can use. NSTA has a wide range of resources available (https://www.nsta.org/eclipse), including a booklet you can share with your administrators to make sure they are on board early.
The last total solar eclipse to cross the United States until 2045 occurs in April 2024. Everyone in North America will experience at least a partial eclipse, so you will want your students to be ready to enjoy and appreciate this rare celestial event.
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.
