Data Collection Project

The ADE Office of Computer Science is excited to partner with the University of Central Arkansas in Conway for the 2024 Solar Eclipse Endeavor Statewide Data Hunt. For this exciting project, educators and students will collect and monitor light and temperature levels during the April 8 solar eclipse. After the eclipse, UCA will combine the data, which will be shared with districts for continued learning and additional projects with students.

More than 60 schools in more than 45 counties are participating in this project, with ADE providing the light and temperature devices to schools. ADE recently completed 15 professional development sessions with educators who are building lessons around the use of the devices and the eclipse.

Educators can contact the ADE Office of Computer Science at CSforAR@ade.arkansas.gov to learn more.
