Science News Learning Ambassadors

The Science News Learning Ambassadors are educators from across the country who have been inspiring their middle and high school science students with Science News journalism for years! They are Science News Learning expert teachers who want to share their love of teaching science literacy using current, real-life examples with others throughout the school year. Ambassadors partner with program staff to give meaningful feedback and develop new, creative lesson plans using Science News Learning resources and solutions for their own classrooms.

Prepare Your Community for the Eclipse

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing through towns and cities in Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. In the U.S., more than 30 million people from parts of Texas to Maine reside in the path of totality and will experience the dark sky associated with the total eclipse.

This activity will help students learn more about eclipses and how to communicate scientific information through the creation of a video about the upcoming total eclipse on April 8, 2024. Students will practice summarizing information from a variety of Science News Media Group articles and will use their writing skills to create an informative script for their video. For those in the solar eclipse’s path, the video will also discuss where to watch the eclipse and how to get involved in community education projects.
