Your students will be lighting up with excitement in this enlightening demonstration! Throughout this program, we will discuss the basic properties of visible light—where it comes from, how it moves, and ways it can be affected. How will moving a light source alter the appearance of a shadow? If light travels in a straight line, how can we make it change direction? We will answer all these questions and more in this prismatic presentation!
