So the big event is over; now what to do with your glasses? Before you throw them away or recycle them, read this article. Did you know that there will be eclipses visible in Asia and South America in 2019? This creates a great opportunity for all of us to think outside our bubble and actually make a difference for a child in a developing country that doesn’t have access to the resources we have here. Imagine a child being inspired by what they see to learn more about science and where that might lead!
Astronomers Without Borders is working on a program to collect the glasses or if you’re looking to unload them sooner than later, you can mail them to Explore Scientific, 1010 S. 48thStreet, Springdale, Arkansas, 72762.
