STEM Technology Lead Troy Cline presents a tactile diagram of a solar eclipse to a blind Chief.
STEM Technology Lead Troy Cline jetted to Micronesia in March to support NASA and the Exploratorium in a webcast of the total solar eclipse. Using home-made props and disposable eclipse-glasses and filters, he helped instruct local children and adults on how to view the eclipse safely. A highlight of the event was a tactile diagram of the eclipse which he presented to a head Chief, who is blind. As the Chief felt the alignment, a great smile crossed his face. It was an incredible moment for the team.
