All Things Eclipse Webinar, August 18, 2017, 3 PM EDT. Live from the path of totality, Charles Fulco will discuss how an eclipse occurs, how to safely view the eclipse (no glasses, no problem), and will share classroom resources that you can use with your students.

Total Eclipse of the Sun. On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. A list of classroom resources has been compiled to assist you as you bring the "Eclipse 2017" alive for your students.

GLOBE Observer Eclipse App! Download this app for smart phones and tablets, register an account, and get your thermometer ready to collect citizen science data for NASA during the eclipse.

Observations are needed from across North America-from the path of totality and those experiencing a partial eclipse.

Let the Eclipse Begin a Pathway to Unlimited Learning! Monday, August 21, 2017, could quite possibly be your best science demonstration ever.
