St. Louis University High School, like much of the metropolitan area, is anticipating a rare moment on August 21: a total solar eclipse. On June 17, a group from the school participated in the Eclipse Expo at Queeny Park to help 8,000 visitors learn more about this exciting event.
"Our students did a great job representing SLUH at the Eclipse Expo," says science teacher Kathy Chott, who was joined by Luke Brawer '19, Gabe Lepak '19 and science teacher Mary Russo. "They made such an impression on one educator that she invited them to work with her elementary students on the day of the eclipse."
SLUH's group educated the public on how to collect temperature and light intensity data during the eclipse. They were one of 70 vendors at the conference and the only single high school represented (the Parkway and Rockwood School Districts were represented).
