What is light?
Light is defined as the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things viable. But what exactly is it? We observe the wonders of light every day by viewing our reflection in a mirror, seeing a rainbow appear after a storm, watching a firework display or glimpsing at a straw in a glass of water. However, these sighting only lead to more questions. Does light travel in waves? Why do we see colours? What makes fireworks colourful? And what are the common properties of light?
During this workshop children will be amazed by discovering how white light is made up of all the colour of the rainbow. The children experiment with coloured filters, polarized filters and more. This is followed by observing how plasma balls can be used to make a light bulb glow and what makes fireworks colourful by watching colourful flames.
