Solar telescopes will be set up for observation and smartphone photography of activity.  Meteorites will be on display, and star charts handed out.  Families will have a chance to build a 20X 32mm spyglass in our optics workshop with Pensacola Mess Hall Science Center.  They can buy the finished scope for $15, or donate them to the Astronomers Without Borders STEM spyglasses for Ciencia Puerto Rico.  Donars will get a certificate thanking them for their support of STEM education in the elementary schools of Puerto Rico.  Solar filtered 8x21 monoculars will also be available for participants for $5.
