About the Shop
In addition to creating this free app, Big Kid Science donated more than 100,000 pairs of eclipse glasses to schools across the United States for the 2017 eclipse. If you’d like to show your support for these efforts — and help make similar efforts possible for future eclipses — we hope you will purchase our eclipse glasses and books, and also donate to our favorite space education nonprofits. Follow the links below. Thank you!
You can use eclipse glasses to look at the Sun safely at any time, not just during an eclipse! Use the link below to order our Totality app branded glasses, which meet the ISO 12312-2 standard meaning that they will last indefinitely as long as the lenses are undamaged.
If you like our app, you’ll love our books! This link will take you to our web store, where you can order direct (with discount offer below) or through Amazon.
