Product Details

How does light and color impact our perception of objects? Students carry out five comprehensive, hands-on experiments to examine the nature of light, color and optics.
  • Observe the reflection of light using mirrors and refraction of light through water and other transparent objects.
  • Investigate the properties of concave and convex lenses, learn how to focus a “real image” onto a screen and create a working telescope!
  • Compare the properties of different types of plastics with polarized light.
  • Explore the nature of color—learning the difference between color mixing by addition and by subtraction—and study an optical illusion to discover that perceived colors are not always “black and white.”
Easy-to-set-up lab stations allow groups to work independently to explore specific aspects of light, color and optics then move on to the next station. Detailed instructions and Teacher Notes are provided.

Standard laboratory equipment and flashlights are required and available separately.
