Event-Based Science meets National Science Education Standards!


Total Solar Eclipse 8/21/2017

Event-Based Science is a new way to teach middle school science. It is an award-winning, standards-based program in which newsworthy events establish the relevance of science topics; authentic tasks create the need-to-know more about those topics; and lively interviews, photographs, Web pages, and inquiry-based science activities create a desire to know more about those topics.

On Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse made its way from Oregon to South Carolina. Fourteen states were in the path of totality. This was the first time a total eclipse covered such a wide swath of America since 1918.

EBS was there!
