An interactive virtual incursion where students work with a Scienceworks learning facilitator to uncover the science behind light and colour.

How are rainbows formed? Can you make coloured shadows? Can you make something disappear?

Students will be wowed and entertained as they are facilitated by a Scienceworks presenter in a series of experiments with light and colour. These experiments will uncover what white light is made up of, how it bends when it moves through or is blocked by different materials and what happens when that light reaches our eyes. Can you always trust what your eyes see?

Join the virtual learning program Light and Colour Uncovered to find out!

Program subsidies apply for select schools as sponsored by the Toyota Community Trust. Please enquire upon booking.
