A special note to our AAS mini-grant recipients wondering about project evaluation: InsightSTEM is handling this for us. You should have received a message from them before the eclipse. If you didn't, it's possible the message went into your spam folder or otherwise went astray. In that case, please contact Jake Noel-Storr at InsightSTEM at your earliest convenience.
Did you organize an event or activity for the August 21, 2017, solar eclipse across America? If so, please join the American Astronomical Society (AAS) and National Science Foundation (NSF) in a nationwide evaluation project to understand the outcomes and learn valuable lessons that will inform planning for the next two U.S. solar eclipses: the annular ("ring") eclipse of October 14, 2023, and the total eclipse of April 8, 2024.
Organizers who signed up for this project in advance received evaluation forms to copy and distribute to their event/activity participants and will eventually have access to nationwide results as well as the results for their own sites. The evaluation is being conducted by our partners at InsightSTEM.
It is obviously too late to sign up in advance now! Please direct people who attended your event to the survey form at http://stem.ooo/eclipse17 so that we can capture at least some information about your program for use in our analysis. Thank you!
