Wow Them with the Solar Eclipse on Aug. 21st!

“Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

In my newest book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom (out soon), I’ve dedicated one of the missions to citizen science projects. One of the most amazing citizen projects, the Eclipse Ballooning Project, will allow you and your students to watch the livestream of the historic total solar eclipse on Aug. 21st. Mark your calendars, because no student or educator should miss this historic event! The Eclipse Ballooning Project is a citizen science project organized by NASA. Over 50 student teams (middle school to college) across the US are sending high-altitude balloons to test the ability of life to survive beyond Earth as well as live stream the total solar eclipse.  Below, find citizen science projects, lesson plans and activities to prepare you for this momentous learning opportunity! Citizen science projects span all subjects. Through citizen science your students’ learning makes a real impact on the world.
