The Out-of-Door Academy students well-equipped to learn about the solar eclipse.
The solar eclipse glasses might not have been fashionable, but The Out-of-Door Academy senior Christopher Eckart was not going to take any chances.
"I am glad I got these glasses — I haven't gone blind yet," Eckart said Monday as 600 of his fellow students gathered at The Out-of-Door Academy's center quad to view the eclipse. "I am excited for this because I love science and this is such a rare event."
Each ODA student and faculty member was given eclipse glasses and a cell phone filter to take photos.
Prior to the eclipse viewing, ODA students attended an assembly to learn more about a solar eclipse.

"We have been geeking out at NASA's live feed since it started at noon," Medina said.
