Light and color are things we experience every day, but what are they? Why do we see them the way we do? What can light and color teach us about objects in space? Students will explore these questions and learn how astronomers study the universe using specialized tools and space-based observatories. Activities include analyzing color perception, using color filters, observing spectra and detecting invisible light. Participants work directly with OMSI educators in small group settings.
This program takes place in the Kendall Planetarium. Combine this program with a planetarium show during your field trip.
