The Solar Eclipse Experience
On Friday 20th March we were lucky to experience the almost-total solar eclipse from our school playgrounds. Every child in school was involved, from the kindergartens (ages 3 to 6) up to class 8 (age 13-14). It was an ideal day for Class 7, who are studying astronomy as part of their main lesson and science curriculum!
We set up binocular and pinhole projectors, the children used colanders and other pinholes as well as reflcetors to project their own images of the eclipse, and there was plenty of direct viewing through safety foil.
Here are some of the images from the day…
