    The first day of our Pine Ridge road trip, generously funded by our Halliburton STEM Pathways grant. We saw 300 students, aided by a bunch of folks in tie dye. We had Little Shop staff and interns, College of Natural Science Outreach Scholars, staff and students from Oglala Lakota College, and our friends from Generations Indigenous Ways. Each student (and all of the teachers and staff at the school) took home a giveaway bag with Halliburton rainbow glasses, buzzing magnets, a hand lens, and sunburn beads.

    As part of the Great American Eclipse, the Little Shop of Physics along with ESMEI handed out 50,000 pairs of glasses in order for folks to safely view the sun. The majority of these glasses were provided free of charge to K-12 and college students, and the remainder were given away. $5,000 in donations were collected for Robert’s Orphanage in Uganda.

    The Great American Solar Eclipse was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where a solar eclipse is visible from the entire continental United States. The Little Shop of Physics hosted several events surrounding the eclipse, which took place on the first day of the 2017-2018 school year. The main goal of all of the events was to use this unique opportunity, when much of the country was outside, looking up to the sky, to engage the public, to give people a chance to safely experience this remarkable celestial event.
