Disappointment! Hyped as a once in a lifetime experience, many students at the TEC campus, who came together Monday, August 21st for the eclipse watching party were unsatisfied. Around 11:25, hundreds of students poured into the Pirate Stadium and put their special glasses on for the viewing. A lot of students loved the changing size of the sun and the way the moon crossed its path. Other students said it was a let down as only the light changed a bit and it didn’t go completely dark here in Englewood.

Many students were interested in the celestial event and eclipse glasses were hard to come by and many students had to share.

The event at Englewood TEC campus took several weeks to plan. The schedule for the day was shortened to make room for the :45 minutes spent outside viewing the eclipse. The TEC science teachers from middle and high school took the initiative to ensure this was an entire school event and asked teachers to incorporate parts of the eclipse science into their classroom lessons, “I feel like it was an interesting and once in a life thing”, said Bria Look (11).

The picture gallery here is a look at the event through the eyes of the students and faculty.
