On August 21, all of North America will be treated to an awe-inspiring sight: a solar eclipse. Here in Maryland, the moon will obscure more than 80% of the sun.  Celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse viewing opportunity with MdBio’s science educators and eclipse fans. Adults and kids of all ages are invited to learn about eclipse safety, differences between a solar and lunar eclipse, and build a model to explain why eclipses happen. Participants will also collect and record temperature and climate data for NASA’s Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program.

Eclipse glasses will be provided to the first 100 registrants.
