Make your own pinhole projector so you can safely view the partial solar eclipse on April 8!

Get ready for the solar eclipse on April 8! While Maryland will only see a partial eclipse, it will still be quite a sight! In order to safely view the eclipse, you will need solar viewing glasses or you can use a pinhole projector. We will build our own pinhole projectors so that you can share the eclipse viewing experience safely with others!

Eclipse glasses will be available to program participants. Limit is one viewer per child physically attending the program.

This program is designed for children 6 years old and up. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
