On February 26th 2017 an annular solar eclipse swept across southern South America and central Africa. We organised a series of educational events at the Instituto Superior de Ciências de Educação (ISCED) in Huambo, Angola, including a live broadcast with Slooh. We’re extremely grateful to our lead sponsor for this project, the wonderful timeanddate.com.
We’d also like to say a huge thank you to our eclipse glasses sponsor NCR Angola, plus the Angolan Ministry of Higher Education, and the Provincial Government of Huambo.

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.
Madagascar & Japan 2016
We set up a cross-border collaboration between students at the University of Mahajanga in Madagascar (who experienced an annular eclipse in September 2016), and Kobe Shinwa Women’s University in Japan (who had a cloudy partial eclipse in March 2016).
SkypeRead is a cross-border teambuilding activity that has been generously supported by Start Motion Pictures, the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series and Wes Anderson. Students from different countries meet online and do a read-through of a movie script.
