Local School Learns During Rare Solar Eclipse

Share Post

Not only did students here at Emmaus Lutheran get the chance to watch the eclipse Monday, thanks to solar eclipse glasses, but the older students got to perform a real world experiment.

One 7th grade science teacher Hannah Boehme wouldn't have missed.

"I mean these opportunities don't come along everyday, you know. So, to be able to work with these students, and let them experience real world things inside and outside the classroom that's awesome."

Boehme's 7th grade class, along with the 6th and 8th grades, were given the task of tracking temperature, volts, and sky condition every ten minutes during the eclipse.

Measurements made possible thanks to Dick Evans of the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society.
