How does light work? Why is it visible when other forms of energy are not? How does it interact with the world around us, and how do we use it in our daily lives? Come on an adventure of discovery as we answer these and many other questions in the Science of Light.

As part of Volusia County Library Oceans of Possibilities summer programming, the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is proud to bring our premier presentation The Science of Light to children ages 10 to 15 years old.

The Science of Light is an interactive activity designed to introduce and reinforce concepts related to the science of light including refraction, reflection, and the visible spectrum by examining the development and evolution of lighthouse optics. This program includes hands-on experiments using full-scale models of lighthouse optics including the Fresnel Lens.

This one-day only program is brought to the people of Volusia County free of charge thanks in part to the Volusia County Library System and the Ponce De Leon Lighthouse Preservation Association Programs Department.
