Light Fantastic – make light work of teaching the concepts behind reflection, refraction and the visible spectrum! In this practical workshop from the SSERC team you will explore a range of simple activities that are easy to transfer to the classroom. Using safe and inexpensive resources you will mix coloured light, investigate reflection and refraction and take a closer look at perception. Common misconceptions will be addressed. This workshop, incorporating physics, biology, art and history, has already provided solid foundations for primary/secondary transition projects. Delegates will get to make and take away a range of resources to support teaching and learning in their setting.
