In this auditorium program, students learn about the properties of light. Students will learn that “without light, there is no sight”, that white incandescent light is made of all the colors of the rainbow, which is called the spectrum, and that some parts of the spectrum are visible and other parts are invisible to the eye yet still carry energy (infrared and ultraviolet light). Students learn how the eye detects and images distant objects and perceives color, and learn to distinguish between additive and subtractive color mixing. More advanced topics of light will include lasers, lenses, and light pipes; polarization of light; wave interference and the wave nature of light; light reflection, absorption, refraction, diffraction, and transmission of light; and spectroscopy.
