Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Presents The Science of Light

Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Docents will present Lighthouses and the Science of Light, an interactive program which focuses on the challenges encountered through the ages in attempting to use, harness and concentrate the energy and power of light.   For sailors, the ability to see light in a lighthouse at a distance, was a not only a game-changer in navigation and transportation, but also a lifesaver.  Follow and assist the lighthouse keepers as they explore the pitfalls and triumphs which eventually led to the first modern optic, the Fresnel Lens.
