We want to be Scientists too

IMG_4240 (1)On the left is a photo of about 20 Standard 6 students (5th-6th grade?)who heard Telescopes to Tanzania (TtT) were in the village of Kin’gori and wanted to meet with them because they want to be scientists too.

So they and their teachers came to school on a Saturday to learn about the eclipse.

Now they will teach the rest of the 500 students at the school and other villagers about next Sunday.

TtT left them solar glasses (Thanks to Astronomers Without Borders), and a few small 30mm scopes for solar projection, and KiSwahili handouts with Eclipse information and directions on how to create pinhole viewers.

TtT will be teaching in 4 secondary schools this coming week — reaching thousands of students and about 100 teachers.

Northern Tanzania will be ready for the 3 November Eclipse!!!
