You Can Donate Those Solar Eclipse Glasses

You Can Donate Those Solar Eclipse Glasses

Now that you’ve survived the solar eclipse, what do you do with those glasses? You could pack them away for the 2024 eclipse or you can donate them. 

Don’t Waste. Donate!

Astronomers Without Borders will take them off your hands and put them in the hands of children. The glasses will be sent to students in South America and Asia for the 2019 total eclipse. The glasses will be used to aid STEM education in schools that can’t afford to provide glasses.

 

 

“Many schools in developing countries don’t have resources for science education, and this is a rare opportunity that inspires students and teachers and shows them that science is something they can do. It can be a ray of hope for young people who don’t otherwise see a path to a career like this,”  Says Astronomers Without Borders president Mike Simmons told Gizmodo.
