Abstract Details (PID = P124)
Title:Get Ready for a Solar Eclipse! (P124)
Description:The solar eclipse in 2017 was the most-viewed solar eclipse in our country to date, as more than 215 million people in the United States watched the spectacle in sky in person, and many more around the globe saw it live online. On Monday, April 8, 2024, the entire continental United States gets to experience the spectacle all over again as we bask in the fleeting shadow of the Moon during the last total solar eclipse visible in the US until 2044. This keynote address will educate you about the upcoming eclipse and when & how to see it safely and inspire you to connect your students to the sky. We will cover using pinhole projectors for viewing, earth/moon scale modeling, and hands-on activities for students.
