Making Waves – The Science of Light
Roger (Lola’s Dad), is our very own scientist in schools man! He gets the teachers and children involved in a science challenge across our school every year – and we love working with him!
This year’s challenge was to design a solar powered water heater.
Roger told us that black was the best “colour” for absorbing heat.
But was he right? Our class decided to put this to the test!
The children were asked to design their own experiments using ice cubes and coloured card to test this theory.
You can see some of our designs for this task below, and many more of our exciting Science Week experiments!
We also looked at and made our own optical illusions. Optical Illusions can use color, light and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. Check out our illusions in the video below:
