Light Incursion

November26

The students attended an hour of Physical Science program delivered by the Monash University Prime SCI! team.
During the presentation students were introduced to the properties of light and colour through activities including bending and reflecting light with torches and mirrors, and exploring the colours of the rainbow.

Observe what happens when light has to pass through opaque (light cannot pass through), transparent ( light can pass through)and translucent objects (only some light will pass through)

“Light Incursion”

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro

    The Light Incursion was very interesting informative. I learnt that light:

    Travels in Straight Lines
    Light Reflects
    Light Refracts.
    I liked how the experiments worked, especially when you pour water in the bowl until you can see the coin in the bowl metres away.
