This week, we started talking about the solar eclipse and will continue with students on Monday! The excitement is definitely in the air! In all classes, we discussed how a solar eclipse works by getting to actually model the eclipse (on a much smaller scale)! We also discussed the importance of safety during the eclipse so that we protect our eyes while we enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity.
On Monday, students will have the opportunity to view the eclipse here at school! In STEAM class, we will be constantly checking out NASA's live stream so that we can totally understand what is occurring.
Jackson has received glasses from two approved vendors--American Paper Optics and Rainbow Symphony. Both of these manufacturers are on the reputable vendors list sent out by the American Astronomical Society. Check them out here: https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters
Our glasses also contain the necessary evidence that they comply with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for filters for direct viewing of the Sun.
