Eclipse Ambassadors Wanted

submitted by ennisjes@augsburg.edu

Are you interested in physics, astronomy, science communication, or science education? Undergraduate students are invited to become Eclipse Ambassadors and help prepare their communities for a pair of exciting celestial events! Two solar eclipses will cross North America – the first an annular solar eclipse on Oct 14, 2023, followed by a total solar eclipse on Apr 8, 2024.

Beginning in 2023, college students will be partnered with amateur astronomers and trained as Eclipse Ambassadors to bring NASA science and eclipse cultural connections to their communities. The partners will bring programs to local libraries and other community organizations. The project hopes to reach 500 communities across the country, with emphasis on traditionally underserved audiences. We ask students to join us to learn new skills, make connections, and share their love of science with the public!

Undergraduates: Please help us better serve future Eclipse Ambassadors and be notified when applications open. Take 5 minutes to answer these questions (and qualify to win one of five $20 Target Gift Cards!)
