Expert "eclipse advice" at SEL!

April 8, 2024

Students at Smithtown Elementary are ready for the solar eclipse, after being  treated to a special eclipse presentation by a real live NASA scientist! 

This school-wide virtual visit was scheduled with Dr. Finn. She shared an amazing PowerPoint with our students which explained what a solar eclipse is as well as additional facts about the sun and moon. Students even got to have question and answer time at the end of the session.

Dr. Finn shared how the solar eclipse is a unique experience, and she loved that our PTA bought solar viewing glasses for our students as a gift!
