Eclipse 2024 Workshop

A total solar eclipse will sweep across the U.S. on Monday, April 8, 2024, with Bloomington and Indiana University right at the center of the path of totality. For about 4 minutes around 3:04pm (ET), the sun will be completely shadowed by the moon enabling spectacular viewing of the Sun’s corona in total darkness.

Our IU scientists at the Center for the Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM), in partnership with the Departments of Physics and Intelligent Systems Engineering, would like to investigate this phenomenon together with science teachers and students. We will host activities that day at the Multidisciplinary Engineering and Sciences Hall (MESH) at IU-Bloomington. 

We are excited to invite you to participate on Monday 4/8/24, in our solar eclipse event at MESH, and welcome you to invite your own students, collaborators, and colleagues. 

While the full program is still under construction, we anticipate a mix of talks, hands-on activities, and scientific demonstrations related to the science of eclipse. In addition, there will be activities to share our work on other science and engineering topics. There will also be opportunities to learn more about our student programs in these areas. We promise things to see, do, and learn about - even if it is cloudy that day!
