A special science program for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders is scheduled Saturday at 10 a.m El Progreso Memorial Library.
Local educator Deyanira Salazar will lead the program titled “Shifty Shadow Shapes.” Students will study how the shapes of shadows change given the orientation of light, indoors and outdoors, weather permitting. Students will explore shadows cast by various objects and those cast by light sources at different angles.
This event is being held in conjunction with the library’s current showcasing of Light: Beyond the Bulb, a traveling exhibit on loan from Harvard University. The exhibit exemplifies the science of light, and how it plays a role in our everyday lives.
The exhibit materials and images were crowd-sourced and curated for science content and beauty. The origin of the exhibit stems from the 2015 International Year of Light, an initiative formed by the United Nations in an effort to raise global awareness about how light based technologies provide solutions to global challenges in energy, agriculture, health and education.
