Students entering grades 2 to 7 in the fall took part in an enlightening day camp Monday through the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh STEM Outreach program. Building off inspiration from NASA, the students learned about and safely observed the solar eclipse.
“The day started with learning about what an eclipse is,” said STEM Outreach Director Samara Hamze. “The campers then learned about the electromagnetic spectrum, particularly infrared and UV, which we cannot see with the naked eye. After, they learned how to make instruments to view the eclipse.”
