NASA also partners with local libraries to host eclipse events. This could be a wonderful way to grow or start a new collaboration in your community.

The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network) also has a variety of materials and resources for training, promotion, community collaborations, and youth activities for the eclipse.

The Exploratorium has free mobile app that incorporates their eclipse livestreaming programs and many other eclipse adventures, including those that feature solar eclipses from the Navajo worldview.

You can connect with Zoe Learner Ponterio, Outreach Coordinator, at Cornell's Spacecraft Planetary Image Facility (SPIF) and overall champion of 4-H. Among the other wonderful resources available at SPIF, Zoe has an eclipse workshop that she would lead for youth and adults. This workshop could be in-person if you're located in central New York and could also be held virtually. Contact Zoe to learn more.
