The Science of Light
April 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Ponce Inlet Lighthouse docents Bill Henry, John Mann and Steven Oshinski will present an interactive program that focuses on the challenges encountered throughout history when attempting to use, harness and concentrate the energy and power of light. For sailors, the ability to see a lighthouse at a distance was a game changer. Follow along as the lighthouse keepers explore the pitfalls and triumphs of light as a navigation aid and how it eventually led to the first modern optic, the Fresnel lens. Light refreshments, including lemonade, will be served. Free. Registration is requested; call 386-668-3840 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
