Thanks to generous donations from Google, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and the Exploratorium, we are able to provide viewing glasses to teachers. Due to high demand, please set up stations for maximum student participation using activity suggestion links on this page.
Elementary Teachers: SFUSD will distribute limited numbers of viewing glasses through District Mail to your principals.
Middle & High School Science Teachers: SFUSD will provide each teacher with viewing glasses at the August 17th Science Professional Development Day.
