  • Ketan Fournier and George Reph made a model inspired by the concept of those who used pinhole boxes to observe the eclipse from this summer.

  • Emma Frink and Naomi Byers show a partial solar eclipse.

  • Lexi Guimond and her partner developed a model to show what a total solar eclipse looks like from the perspective on Earth. Notice the “corona” showing in the model.

Eighth-grade science students at the Henniker Community School recently designed and made models of an eclipse, a real world application of how scientists use models to demonstrate a natural phenomenon.

Students in Ms. Baroody’s class created models that demonstrated various perspectives of an eclipse – solar vs. lunar eclipse, total vs. partial eclipse, and introduced the topic of scale within our solar system – all learning targets within the eighth-grade science curriculum.
