For the first time in nearly 40 years, a total solar eclipse is expected to bring darkness in daylight hours to some U.S. skies Monday. Teachers at Los Altos and Mountain View high schools plan to turn the event into a learning experience for their students.
A total solar eclipse is expected to be visible throughout the United States Monday, and teachers at Mountain View and Los Altos high schools are prepared to turn the event – which will not occur for another 38 years – into an educational opportunity for their students.
Mountain View High
At Mountain View High, participating teachers will present curriculum to their students tying the eclipse to their subjects, then lead them outside to view the eclipse using special glasses purchased by the MVLA Foundation.
