Color & Light

body bubbleExplore how light affects the colors we see everyday in this vibrant hands-on experience. When light hits an object, some reflects, or bounces off the object and some is absorbed, or taken in by the object.

At the Bubble Window and Body Bubble stations, use liquid soap solution to form thin bubble films that demonstrate the concept of surface tension. Can YOU encase yourself in a bubble?

At the Laser Table, reflect a beam of visible laser light to create a mini laser show. In the Recollections Room, a walk-in video screen lets you see your shadow transformed into colorful computer-enhanced images that change with your movements!

At Prisms and Rainbows, explore the properties of light prisms, mirrors, and color filters. Capture your shadow on a wall in the Shadow Room.
