Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(2)
In this class we will learn all about solar eclipses, how they occur and how to view them safely. We will build our own pinhole projectors out of common household items that can be used as a way to safely view the April 2024 solar eclipse.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Beginner Level
Students will learn the basic movement and positioning of the Earth, moon and sun during a solar eclipse. They will learn specific details of the April 2024 solar eclipse that will be viewable across the contiguous United States. They will learn how a pinhole projector works and how to build a simple one from common household materials. 
I love star gazing and have over a decade of experience teaching astronomy to kids in grades 3-6th at overnight ecology school and in the science classroom. The 2017 solar eclipse viewable across the United States was such a fun experience. I love that so many people are excited about a science phenomena and that it turns into a community event. I'm looking forward to getting as many kids as possible excited about the solar eclipse in April, 2024.
