Become a NASA Partner Eclipse Ambassador

Post by defalkner »

Posted at the request of Eclipse Ambassadors Off the Paths - a NASA Partner program.

In October 2023 and April 2024, two solar eclipses will be cris-crossing the US. In an exciting new partnership, undergraduate students and eclipse enthusiasts will engage their local communities in advance of the eclipses to enjoy the awe and wonder of this unique alignment. Eclipse Ambassadors will bring outreach programs to underserved audiences in local libraries, colleges, schools, and other community organizations. Training, partnerships, and resources are provided and all engagement can be done before the eclipses - there's no commitment when the shadows arrive. Undergraduates will also receive a stipend, plus opportunities to further their involvement in NASA programs.

Hi MAS crew,

There are currently 6 college students in Minneapolis looking for amateur astronomer partners for the Eclipse Ambassador program: ... 237794&z=9

This is a great opportunity to share the love of observing with the next generation, bring new members to your club, and get the word out about the upcoming eclipses to your community. Just a reminder, there's no commitment on eclipse day - this is all about preparing your community in advance.

Please take a moment and apply - it's a wonderful program with a supportive community and lots of opportunities. Apply today:
