Our Global Communication and Science programme uses solar eclipses as ‘teachable moments’ for young people across the world. Our aims are to help students improve their science, language and cross-border collaboration skills.
Next project: Angola 2017
Sponsored by timeanddate.com
On February 26th 2017 an annular solar eclipse will sweep across southern South America and central Africa. We’re organising a series of educational events at the Instituto Superior de Ciências de Educação (ISCED) in Huambo, Angola; we’re also doing a live broadcast from ISCED with Slooh. We’re extremely grateful to our lead sponsor for this project, the wonderful timeanddate.com.
Previous project: Indonesia 2016
Sponsored by Garuda Indonesia
We were at Tadulako University, on the island of Sulawesi, for the March 9th 2016 total solar eclipse across Indonesia. We organised a cross-border collaboration with students at Western Kentucky University in the US for an experiment to study the solar corona. This project was generously sponsored by Garuda Indonesia.
