Great American Eclipse WV
Hello West Virginia Educators! Did you know that August 21st, 2017 there is a solar eclipse? It's named “The Great American Eclipse” because it can be seen across the entire continental United States. The last time we had this opportunity here in WV was 1994 – and the next won’t be until 2024! Throughout the summer, the WVU Physics & Astronomy Department and WVU Extension, with support from the Green Bank Observatory and the WV Space Grant Consortium, are teaming up to teach West Virginia youth from across the state how to share this historic event with their friends and families right in their very own communities.

Request safe-viewing eclipse glasses for your students! We will be offering a series of five short professional development videos in that will get you ready to engage your students right when school starts back. The videos will be posted before mid-summer, and you can watch them at your own pace, then join us for a Q&A, and we'll ship you a set of eclipse glasses for FREE. Fill out this form to keep in touch and receive our updates!

Dates to keep in mind:

Tuesday, July 25th - Afternoon Q&A Video Chat (time TBD)

Wednesday, August 2nd - Morning Q&A Video Chat (time TBD)

Friday, August 4th - Deadline to fill out this form and request glasses

August 8th - Shipping Day
