RMSC COMMUNITY ECLIPSE AMBASSADORS

To prepare and excite our community for the incredible shared experience of the Total Solar Eclipse, in 2023, we launched the RMSC Community Eclipse Ambassador Program.

RMSC Community Eclipse Ambassadors are trained in eclipse education, basic astronomy, and eclipse viewing safety. Ambassadors are outfitted with equipment including a telescope with a solar viewing filter, educational materials, solar viewing glasses, and materials for activities. Each organization received a $1,000 stipend for participation.

The goal of the Ambassador program is to excite and educate the community about the April 8th, 2024 Total Solar Eclipse and de-centralize STEM learning into communities, creating access for all.

Participants represent community organizations, businesses, or municipalities and serve people in Rochester and the nine counties (Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates).
