Scouting with the 2017 Eclipse
The eclipse is a great opportunity for Scouts to witness one of nature’s finest spectacles. We do not have a pack event set up for a viewing party, but Pack members are encouraged to coordinate or plan their own viewings on Monday, August 21. The event is a wonderful STEM opportunity, and a patch can be earned if you complete the following:
- Locate a site suitable for viewing either the total eclipse or the partial eclipse.
- Describe how to safely view the eclipse.
- Discuss with your group what you saw and felt during the eclipse. If you can, post your comments and eclipse photos on social media with the hashtag #BSAEclipse2017.
- Do the following: Cub Scouts — Discuss what a solar eclipse is with your leaders.
Patches need to be pre-ordered. If anyone is interested in earning this patch, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 7/27 to get included in the group order. For more information see: http://www.scouting.org/eclipse2017.aspx.
