Get ready for August's upcoming total solar eclipse with Dennis Schatz, nationally recognized astronomy educator. Discover what causes eclipses, learn how to view them safely, and find out why it has been so long since we have had the opportunity to experience this phenomenon.

His children’s book about eclipses, When the Sun Goes Dark, will be available for purchase and signing.

About the speaker:
Dennis Schatz is Senior Advisor at Pacific Science Center. He is also Field Editor of a new journal, Connected Science Learning, which highlights links between in-school and out-of-school learning. The journal is a joint effort of NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) and ASTC (Association of Science-Technology Centers).

He is the author of 23 award winning science books for children and a number of teacher resource books, including his latest children’s book, When the Sun Goes Dark, and his teacher resource book, Solar Science, both published by NSTA. Solar Science includes an Eclipse Observing Guide for the upcoming “All-American” total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.

He has won numerous awards from the NSTA and ASTC. His career-long dedication to identifying effective ways to teach astronomy concepts has recently resulted in the International Astronomical Union honoring him by naming an asteroid, Asteroid Schatz, in his honor.
