Does your club want to do astronomy outreach to Spanish-speaking populations in your area?
Would you like to get the word out about the upcoming solar eclipse?
Apply here to receive eclipse materials in Spanish to further your outreach efforts and make new connections in the Latino community.
Twenty five astronomy clubs will receive materials in both Spanish and English to hand out at local events with large Latino audiences. The simple application is due April 28 and will take no more than a few minutes to fill out. Find a festival, music venue, or other event where your club can bring telescopes and resources to this often underserved community and prepare to make new connections.

Our hope is that clubs' relationships with Spanish-speaking audiences will continue to blossom over time. One side of the banner and many of the materials are evergreen and can be used well after the eclipse to engage bilingual audiences.
Funding for this initiative is made possible by the American Astronomical Society's Julena Steinheider Duncombe Grant and the hard working folks at the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. You can print the materials below for non-commercial purposes even if you do not receive the grant. They are generously shared by the NISE Net program under a NASA Cooperative Agreement.
