Check out tiny astronomers in action! Ms. Getz's 2nd grade class at Forrest Road Elementary in Columbus, Georgia, captured this incredible solar eruption during their RISO (Real-time Interactive Solar Observatory) session with Columbus State University's Coca-Cola Space Science Center (CCCSSC) this morning. RISO is an educational outreach program funded in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services Museums for America grant (MA-04-12-0116-12) and continued support of the MeadWestvaco Corporation. Teachers from anywhere in the world can join the CCSSC's educational community to access science standards-based activities and request online telescope sessions for their classes.
