A teacher in Arizona raised enough money to buy 1,000 eclipse glasses for her entire student body and faculty.
Now every student at her school will be able to safely watch the Aug. 21 solar eclipse. The teacher reached out to her district's parent/teacher association who suggested she crowdfund the money. In few hours, she raised $480 and was able to purchase glasses for Canyon Springs' 822 students, plus staff. All 1,000 pairs are made by American Paper Optics, a company approved by the American Astronomical Society.
Canyon Springs is not in the path of totality but residents will be able to partly view the eclipse.
