Great Glasses Play Day
Optiwow.com, the new online eyewear retailer that caters exclusively to children and teens, is pleased to host an exciting Great Glasses Play Day event at Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Children who needs glasses, contacts or patching for vision correction, plus their families and friends are welcome to attend.

The Great Glasses Play Day is an international initiative to celebrate glasses and the children who need them. It is meant to be a day of imaginative play, celebration and support, and to connect families with children who wear glasses. It will also assist in raising awareness of early detection and treatment of childhood vision issues, and the need to follow up and treat any issues that are identified. According to Great Glasses Play Day, Inc, around one in 20 preschool children and one in 10 young school-age children need some form of vision correction.

During the event, attendees will enjoy fun games and activities, and have the option to participate in a raffle to win a pair of MiraFlex® glasses. Dr. Roberto Warman, co-founder of Optiwow.com and an acclaimed Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmologist, will speak to the families about eye safety. Papa John’s is the event food sponsor.

Science Up Close: Inside the Eye of the Storm
Feel the Force kicks off with the fourth installment of the Museum’s popular Science Up Close event series, an evening of casual science conversations, with this edition featuring Dr. Frank D. Marks, Jr., Director, Hurricane Research Division, NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.

Inside the Eye of the Storm

Advances in the study and forecasting of hurricanes came about through scientific and technological improvements in our ability to observe different aspects of the storms using aircraft. Aircraft missions into hurricanes provide the basis for understanding hurricane structure and evolution. Technological advances in aircraft, instrumentation, and telecommunications over the last 20 years enables real-time transmission of all of these observations directly to the operational forecasters and into numerical models greatly increasing our ability to forecast hurricanes. Each of these technologies started as tools used by researchers flying into these storms in order to better determine a hurricane’s location, intensity, and structure. In order to increase the pace of forecast improvement NOAA developed the Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project (HFIP) in 2008 whose goal is to decrease the error in forecast guidance for track and intensity by 20% in 5 years and 50% in 10 years. In order to achieve such and ambitious goal HFIP is pursuing a strategy to make better use of the aircraft observations to provide better initial analyses of the storm’s structure for the models to start from.

Atmospheric scientists and disaster preparedness specialists will lead small group discussions following the presentation.

Guests will enjoy music by the Frost School of Music along with complimentary beverages by Wynwood Brewing Company.

Admission is free to the public but RVSP is required at http://bit.ly/ScienceUpCloseHurricane.
