Mrs. Ford’s class is taking this real lesson another step.  “In addition to this, I am giving our kids an opportunity to collect data during the eclipse.  This data will be sent to the school in Kenya that I taught in over the summer.  This eclipse will not be visible in Kenya.  There is a dental team going in the middle of October that will deliver our kids’ data to the kids on The Hill in Kenya.  We are hoping the the students in Kenya will be able to send a reply to our kids as the dental team returns home.”
