Build an Eclipse Projector


Saturday, April 6, 2024

A solar eclipse is right around the corner! Looking at it directly would be very dangerous, so in this session, we will be designing and building an eclipse projector—a device that you can use to safely watch the shadow of the eclipse when it occurs on April 8th. Explore the science of optics and engineering as we prepare to witness this rare cosmic event!
