Help students clearly see the difference between primary colors of light and primary colors of pigment. Show color mixing by addition using blue, red, and green filters. The three primary colors of light are projected onto a screen then refracted to overlap and produce white light. Next color mixing by subtraction is demonstrated by overlapping filters of magenta, yellow, and cyan—the true primary colors of pigment—to completely absorb all wavelengths of visible light, producing black. An unforgettable demonstration with complete instructions, reproducible student worksheet, and extensive discussion notes. All materials are reusable—a super value!
Requires an overhead projector.
