The Boeing Observatory at the SC State Museum is excited to offer a NEW distance learning experience to get you and your students ready for the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse! In this free 30-minute class led by SCSM observatory educators, you’ll learn:
Eclipse visibility and times for your school’s location
Safe eclipse viewing techniques
Evening observing opportunities in the Boeing Observatory
What’s actually going to happen during the eclipse (and it’s going to be spectacular!)
Plus, you will recieve a copy of our training presentation to keep as a resource for eclipse day
The observatory offers this program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and will customize times to work with class schedules. You’ll need a device (iPad or computer) to communicate with our educators over Skype, FaceTime, or Google+ Hangouts.
Even though the eclipse is next school year, it’s important to begin training now. Don’t wait to schedule your eclipse distance learning experience! Simply contact our observatory staff at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work with you on arranging a date and time.
