NSTA Offers Free Eclipse Webinar on Aug 10

18 Jul 2017 3:31 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Dear Colleagues,


NSTA is offering one last webinar to help you and your school colleagues prepare for the upcoming August 21st solar eclipse.  Join astronomy educators Andrew Fraknoi and Dennis Schatz, authors of the NSTA publications Solar Science and When the Sun Goes Dark, as they discuss when and where the eclipse will be best visible,  a variety of ways to observe the eclipse safely, how to learn what’s happening around the country on August 21st, and some of the citizen science taking place that you can share with your students throughout the year.  Also, find out when and where the NEXT eclipse to cross the U.S. will be visible (HINT: it’s only seven years away.)


Register now to reserve a spot in this FREE web seminar at http://learningcenter.nsta.org/eclipse to get suggestions for ways to explain eclipses and the science behind them, plus observing techniques that work in small or large group situations. 


We look forward to interacting with you during the webinar.


Dennis and Andrew
