The APSU Department of Physics and Astronomy is training students to serve as eclipse guides stationed at parks throughout the city. The University’s Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education is making sure local students get to take full advantage of this rare event. On June 21, 2016, the college hosted an educational summit, “Preparing for the Big Event,” which provided elementary and middle school teachers from across Middle Tennessee with ways to incorporate the eclipse into subjects such as science, mathematics, language arts and music.
The Department of Physics and Astronomy is working with APSU faculty and students to train volunteers who will be available at viewing sites throughout the community. These individuals will be able to talk about the phenomenon and demonstrate how to safely observe a solar eclipse.
