Local Science Teachers Share Insights on Eclipse – Center of Ohio


Apr 4, 2024

With the total solar eclipse approaching, we spoke with local teachers to hear their thoughts on this unique event. Mr. Kyle Rose, a Science Instructor at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, explained that a total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely covering the sun and casting a shadow on our planet, causing darkness for a short period of time.

Mrs. Leslie Bradley, a Biology Teacher at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, stressed the importance of not looking at the eclipse without proper eye protection. She explained that looking at the sun can damage the retina in the back of the eye, which is responsible for sending signals to the brain to interpret what we see. Even though the total eclipse involves the sun being covered, it is still dangerous to look directly at it without protective glasses.

As the total solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime event, it is important to enjoy the experience safely. Remember to protect your eyes and follow proper safety guidelines while observing this phenomenon.
