Reflect, refract, and bend!
In-Person In-School Field Trip Description:
It’s not yoga; it’s an examination of the properties of light. Build a periscope, experiment with mirrors and lasers, perform a shadow puppet show, predict and test materials for transparency/translucency/opaqueness, use a ray box to experiment with bending light, build a color spectrum spinner, discuss sun safety using pinhole camera and welders glass.
Video Conference Program Description:
In this fun-filled virtual presentation, students will explore the wonders of light and shadows with Professor Rainbow! They will take an in-depth look into various characteristics of light, such as light sources, the colour spectrum, refraction and reflection. Students will also investigate transparent, translucent and opaque objects to understand how shadows are created. The students are in for an exciting adventure as they will be guided through the steps on how to create their very own functional sundial!
