Event Description

On August 21, 2017, the Moon will pass directly in front of the Sun, a phenomenon viewable throughout the country!  While the path of the total solar eclipse passes through Oregon, observers in northern California will experience from a 75 to 90 percent partial solar eclipse at a time when many schools are in session!  In this workshop, learn how you can take advantage of this spectacular teachable moment, and engage your class and community in investigating and experiencing the eclipse.  Workshop sessions will actively engage participants in an NGSS storyline approach to understanding the how and why of both solar and lunar eclipses.

This workshop is designed for classroom teachers in Grades 5-12

Registration is FREE - (includes one year of membership in the ASP, The Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0, and a mini-kit of eclipse activity materials)

 

Sign in as at 8:30am and the workshop will begin promptly at 9am and end at 1pm.

Workshop is presented by Brian Kruse from the Teacher Learning Center at the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and hosted by San Joaquin County Office of STEM.
