Celebrating the 2017 Solar Eclipse at USM

University School of Milwaukee welcomed more than 500 students, parents, and friends to view the solar eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017, and learn about the science behind it. USM supplied 500 pairs of viewing glasses as well as handouts with information about the eclipse. Lower School Science Integration Teacher Andrew Stone led the activities and, despite heavy cloud cover, guests were able to get a good view of the moon passing between the sun and Earth. “It was a special opportunity to bring together many members of the USM community, to enjoy a scientific phenomenon, and to experience a sense of wonderment,” said Stone.
