Family Night: Hands-On Science--Make YOUR Pinhole Viewer!

Event Date: 
Jul 20 2017 - 6:00pm

This program requires registration and is limited to 30 children.

Join us for this "You're the Scientist" Family Night when we'll make our own Safety Pinhole Viewers so that we can observe the solar eclipse by watching the shadowed sun. Families should arrange to have an empty cereal box for each participating child. 

Using the viewer is one way to protect our eyes when viewing the truly awesome sky show. Instead of looking at the Sun, the viewer lets us look away from the Sun and watch the eclipse by watching the moon's shadow interrupt the Sun's light in the viewer. Especially for families with children age 6 and up. Children under the age of 8 must be accompained by a responsible adult.
