Students can play and experiment with light using the Light Filter Kit, and experience the properties of light firsthand. Discussion topics include “white light”, refraction, transparency, and light filters in technology. The kit includes materials to make light filter decoding glasses and everything needed to create concealed messages. The instructional resources explain these fun tricks from a physics perspective. Once completed, use the light filter glasses to make observations about the colors around the classroom or at home. Students may also use the filter over a camera lens to catalog observations in pictures.
