Many thousands of additional visitors were expected at public sites due to the eclipse. To help interpreters prepare, ETS held a series of Eclipse 2017 Webinar sessions.
Through interactive sessions, the Earth to Sky Interpreting the Eclipse Webinar Series provided opportunities for interpreters and other informal educators to:
- Learn from NASA experts about the science and mechanics of a total solar eclipse, the nature of our Sun, recent research about Earth’s Moon, and how the Sun-Earth-Moon system interactions affect life on our planet
- Learn about and gain access to a variety of eclipse-related hands-on activities and many NASA eclipse resources and
- Explore ideas for interpreting the eclipse, including ways to tie this amazing celestial event to natural and cultural themes at your site.
Eight archived webinar sessions are available for viewing along with downloadable powerpoints and other resources.
