School District To Charter Buses For Kids To See Eclipse

GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – The Jefferson County School District hopes students use a different method to view the eclipse than glasses.

The district recommends that students instead create “pinhole projectors” and they will then be allowed to go and watch the eclipse.
