On August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse will be seen by millions of people in the United States. The Eclipse Soundscapes Project will help students with visual impairments experience the eclipse through a multisensory approach which will include real-time audio descriptions of the event, recordings of environmental sounds during the event and an interactive "rumble map" that will allow users to visualize the eclipse through touch.

Teachers: Your class can actively participate in this project by registering for and recording audio during the solar eclipse. Learn more about this citizen science opportunity here!
The information collected through this project will be recorded and made available after the solar eclipse. Teachers: This solar eclipse documentation is accessible for all students and can be used in science lessons after the fact.
The Eclipse Soundscapes app will be available soon! UPDATE: Eclipse Soundscapes is now available in the App Store!
