The American Astronomical Society (AAS) Solar Eclipse Task Force invites you to join us for a virtual eclipse-planning workshop to be held Friday-Saturday, April 8-9, 2022, online via Zoom. This event will bring together astronomers, educators, local and state officials, and others involved (or wanting to become involved) in preparing their communities for the 2023 and 2024 North American solar eclipses. Each day’s program will run from 9 am to 2 pm PDT (12 pm to 5 pm EDT).
The workshop will feature talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions on strategies for eclipse-related engagement. Several sessions will focus on best practices in eclipse-related formal and informal education and public outreach, including effective ways to reach underserved and indigenous populations. We’ll also have an introductory session suitable for newcomers to eclipse planning to bring you up to speed on the 2023 and 2024 eclipses and to point you to appropriate resources to help your community prepare for them.
