See your students’ faces light up as they learn about the power and properties of light! In this program, your students will learn what light is and how we use it to see. They will investigate across the visual light spectrum and beyond to see what wavelength has to do with color and experiment with the way light can bend and bounce. Your students will have a ball (and maybe throw a few) as they fire off ideas about how light might or might not pass through certain objects in this fun, enlightening presentation!
