About Us

Education Harbour Ltd was founded by Alan Sheridan in 2008 after six years in science communication left him frustrated by the lack of some of the right basic products to make science fun and more accesible. The first product rainbow glasses for children remain popular in great schools and are just as popular in party bags. Several other holographic diffractions products followed until a breakthrough in 2015 when the BBC chose our eclipse glasses for their own coverage. Thousands of children watched the eclipse safely thanks to our hard work. The rest of 2015 was spent working on the development of our Newton’s Colour Wheel with launches to the education market Association for Science Education Conference 2016 at Birmingham University and then to the retail trade at The Toy Fair 2016.

The phenomenon of the moon aligning with the sun results in the creation of a black hole surrounded by a ring of light that attracts people all around the world. The sun during the eclipse looks like a hole carved in the vast expanse of sky. The total eclipse is even more awe-inspiring and thrilling to the spectators. For a few minutes, everything gets irrevocably transformed. The sun becomes a black disk. The temperature goes down. Planets become visible in the oddly dark sky. 

The incident seems so exciting even in its narration, right? Imagine the level of thrill you will experience seeing it with your own eyes. That would be one of the unforgettable moments of your life. However, you need special glasses for it as staring at this marvel directly can trigger a burned retina problem called solar maculopathy or retinopathy. This can cause permanent loss of vision.
