    Event Description:
    Join the Emerald Coast Science Center at the Fort Walton Beach Library for this free event. We’ll host several solar activities indoors before safely viewing the eclipse outside. Activities •Let your creativity shine as you create your own Sun and Moon on paper plates. Then you can chart the progress of the Eclipse across the sky right in your own hands. •Ultraviolet (UV) light is an invisible type of light that comes from the Sun. UV light in small doses is a good thing - it gives our bodies vitamin D and keeps us from feeling sad or depressed. But too much UV light can be dangerous. Learn about the power of UV rays and how to keep yourself safe the next time you're at the beach while making a bracelet, necklace, or bookmark with these magical UV beads. •Enjoy hands-on exploration as you create your own 3-Hole-PUNCH Pinhole Projectors, experiencing the marvel of optics firsthand. Safely observe the Sun and discover the art of image projection during eclipses or on any sunny day with your personalized projector.
