Community of Practice: Solar Eclipse 2024
Join us to prepare your school for this once-in-a-lifetime event!
Ongoing until April 2024
About The Workshop
The April 2024 Total Solar Eclipse will be a once-in-a-lifetime event for Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces!
For the first time in decades, Eastern and Atlantic Canada will find themselves cast beneath the shadow of the Moon on April 8, 2024. As the Moon passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, it will create a total solar eclipse, completely obscuring the Sun from view for a few spectacular minutes. This is a truly unique phenomenon and will be a well-publicized event.
We're inviting teachers, science leaders, and any other education professional to join us for a Community of Practice (CoP). We will share information with you about how to get ready for this event, especially to ensure your students can observe it safely. We welcome discussion among participants.
We held a few meetings in the spring of 2023 and the dates for the fall of 2023 are:
- October 3 at 7pm eastern
- November 2 at 4:15pm eastern
- December 12 at 4:15pm eastern
We will send you reminders a few days before each meeting. All sessions will be recorded and available to all participants, so you can still join our CoP even if a meeting has passed.
This activity is presented in collaboration with École en réseau. We are running a similar CoP in French through their website.
