Preparing For Totality

Preparing For Totality In-Person

Program Description:

On Monday, April 8, 2024, Rochester will be in the direct path of a total solar eclipse for the first time in almost a century. A total solar eclipse occurs when a portion of Earth is engulfed in a shadow cast by the moon which fully blocks sunlight. Join us as Dan Schneiderman, the Eclipse Partnership Coordinator at the Rochester Museum & Science Center, discusses the science and history of solar eclipses, the impact the eclipse will have on our region, and how to prepare for this extraordinary astronomical opportunity.  


Dan Schneiderman is the Eclipse Partnership Coordinator at the RMSC (Rochester Museum and Science Center) and one of the co-chairs of the Rochester Eclipse Taskforce. He has over 10 years of experience producing STEAM-based events and coordinating sectors at festivals including Maker Faire Rochester, the New York State Fair, and the Rochester Fringe Festival. Currently, he is working towards making sure that, literally, everyone under the sun has a chance to experience the 2024 total solar eclipse.
