SESDA Helps Promote Total Eclipse

June 21, 2024

To promote the total solar eclipse of April 8, 2024, SESDA outreach coordinators and social media specialists organized and led an extensive array of eclipse activities. Working out of Texas’ Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, the coordinators visited four Title I schools in the Austin, TX, area. At the park, they supported a three-day in-person event hosting activities, holding presentations, and giving demonstrations, reaching an estimated 3,500 people. Costumes used in their demonstrations to entertain and educate the public are shown in the figure. Since January, outreach coordinators have passed out over 7,000 informational packets to volunteers in 22 U.S. states.
